Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.
The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.
The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
The real problem is not whether machines think but whether men do.
Teachers need to integrate technology seamlessly into the curriculum instead of viewing it as an add-on, an afterthought, or an event.
I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
We need technology in every classroom and in every student and teacher's hand, because it is the pen and paper of our time, and it is the lens through which we experience much of our world.
The technology itself is not transformative. It's the school, the pedagogy, that is transformative.
There can be infinite uses of the computer and of new age technology, but if teachers themselves are not able to bring it into the classroom and make it work, then it fails.
Learning never exhausts the mind.
In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.
Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths pure theatre.
Anyone who keeps learning stays young.
Education technology and school construction go together. Modernization, updating education facilities, and making a capital investment in education are all included.
The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel.
Education technology is very important because we have a massive challenge in public schools.
