When he was a journalist, Ryan Blitstein was one of the best, and he wrote wonderful stuff for me at Miller-McCune and other publications. (One of his pieces I like a lot,about “weathering,” or the negative health effects of long-term, institutional racism on African Americans, is here.) A while back, he left the scribing biz to become executive director of SCE, a social investment nonprofit in Chicago. But he hasn’t exactly forgotten how to write. Take a look at this piece, “Where Will Digital Learning’s Killer Apps Come From?”, posted on the USC/Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop/Cooney Center Leadership Forum website. It’s the best analysis I’ve seen of the opportunities and difficulties involved in moving forward on the digital education front. And it’s nowhere near as dull as my last sentence might suggest.
