In the current rush to adopt and expand digital learning, many important considerations are being overlooked that will have major consequences for the future of American public education.

The authors also offer critical questions that need to be asked in order to—in the authors’ words—“ensure that technology adds value to the learning and lives of students and staff in public school communities."
