Segal ‘Edutopia’ Blog in BDN

In his inaugural Bangor Daily News blog, University of Maine professor of history Howard Segal discusses well-intentioned initiatives to improve education in the United States through the introduction of high-tech hardware and software. Citing filmmaker George Lucas’s Edutopia Foundation and former Maine Gov. Angus King’s school laptop initiative, Segal said that pre-existing cultural values, traditional political institutions and human nature also play a role in educational reform “that even the most powerful tools and machines cannot readily transcend.”
