Crazy about education

"Many schools that currently lack sufficient textbooks could soon access the world’s best educational content on affordable tablets or e‑books; teachers, too, will benefit from more effective training. The technology-related productivity gains in education could reach $30 billion to almost $70 billion—enabling governments to achieve more with their education budgets and providing millions of students with the foundation for a better future."

This is what teachers should be doing now, online teacher-training experiences.  Cheap or free, world-class, and supported by public and private organizations.  Not to over-promise, but it's the path to modern classrooms - modernizing our teachers' tools and orientation is an efficient path to delivering education that works.
