My son spends a lot of time on Khan Academy and the new portion to actually practice the work instead of being a passive learner is a step in the right direction. I even agree that providing access and real integration of technology is important. However, we cannot ignore that employers are clamoring for a workforce who also has strong interpersonal skills. You cannot learn those through a computer alone.
