Mark van't Hooft looks at tools that allow us to stay connected and stay mobile, that place control in the users' hands, allowing for customization and personalization, and that allow us to be creative and have rich experiences through aggregating and sharing content. Educators, he writes, should focus on the learning opportunities created by such tools. " Instead of banning these tools and punishing those who try to use them for learning in formal settings, schools should take a serious look at learning more about the digital technologies so prevalent in many areas of our society today."
