To the Editor:

To quote from your recent Commentary: “Tech for all?” Yes! “Tablet PCs help kids thrive!” Yes. “Simple-minded thinking about what works and the obsession with scale have turned our penchant for educational technology into a national mania” ("Tech for All?," Oct. 5, 2011).

Teachers and the education system must adapt to technology and the rest of the world, as students and society have.

It’s catch-up time for the education system.
