When it comes to education, the role and effects of technology has been a tough nut to crack. As tomorrow's Digital Learning Day approaches, education groups and officials are offering up their recommendations.
In many cases, misusing educational terms is inconsequential.

However, to conflate media literacy with technology use in schools strikes me as a dangerous misunderstanding.
