Hechinger Report contributing editor Jill Barshay took part in a podcast with Bloomberg radio last week, talking about technology and education and answering some burning questions.
Barshay teamed up with USA Today education reporter Greg Toppo to explain:
-Why are there still textbooks in 2012?
-Why are educational businesses salivating over the common core standards?
-How effective are video games at educating kids?
