Learning first, technology second

Learning with 'e's

Learning should always come before technology. Ideas range from games based learning , to the use of social media and networking, to simpler approaches such as the use of digital cameras in art or data logging in science. Sometimes, the technology does get in the way of learning and teaching. Such tools are in fact large and complex networked systems, and are very expensive to buy if they are proprietary, and very time and labour intense if they are open source.
