      It is a bad move. Students are becoming simply users of technology and not innovators/creators. Technology should be used to reinforce the learning. The focus should be on the subject. For example, if Algebra or functions is being studied, teachers could reinforce the learning by incorporating computer programming (functions) and having students create their own video games.

      The teachers should initiate the dialogue with the technology team and not the other way around.
