A Goal-Based View of Educational Technology

Of course, there isn’t one single holy grail because everyone sees learning differently: the role of academic learning, the function of standardized tests, the utility of having one set of common learning standards, and so on. Unlike the goals of business (profit), athletics (championships), conservation (environmental health), and other "cultural genres," in education the goal -- and thus the perfect system -- is impressively subjective.

Terry Heick over at Edutopia has an interesting way of looking at how technology offers up ways for educators to meet their broader goals.
