Luke Fernandez commented on a post on Blogger.
To be fair to Ms Fisher, the article was an opinion piece. If we want more rigorous scholarship we need to be ready to read peer reviewed journals or books like those authored by Rees or the eminent Ruth Cowan Shwartz. But that goes nearly without saying. To me the real takeaway remains Rees's concluding lines:

Which brings me to the fundamental problem with the Clayton Christensen Institute for Cheerleading Disruption of All Kinds. The whole assumption behind that article is that one technology will always inevitably drive another technology to extinction: Refrigerators will completely replace ice, washing machines will completely replace washboards and edtech will completely replace conventional teaching. That is only true for the first of those examples (and even then, only really in the United States). Whether teachers want to teach with or without edtech is a cultural decision, not some hard and fast rule determined by the universal laws of technology.

To boot, in the wake of Jill Lepores article in the New Yorker, at this point CC and his acolytes are becoming personas non grata in the academy. If we really want to encourage the Rees's of h.e. to look more favorably on ed tech it's best to put the language of disruption on the back burner.
