This article highlights the problems encountered with teaching methodology based on technological instrumentalism.

It also draws attention to the marketisation of education and how much money is now being spent in venture capital investment in education.

Another aspect it looks at is how a utopian view of technology, like students being able to have their own private tutor in a machine, overlooks the human/emotional side that is so strongly accompanies real student-teacher interaction.
