Or do you dig down a bit further to really find the meat and potatoes of what’s really changing in the world of education technology?

That’s exactly what this little-known TED Talk with Raj Dhingra is all about. He delves into the oft-ignored bits of edtech. Also a great watch for anyone relatively new to the edtech game. All around worth a watch, basically.
