Jeff Dunn is an education and technology lover who has worked in far too many industries to count. Okay, like maybe 5 or 6. Jeff can indeed count that high but it's not recommended. Jeff also likes to write bios in the third-person.

What happens when you take a tough look at education and technology at the same time? Do you get swept up in all the buzz around social media, smartphones, and iPads in the classroom? 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.
