The Tech & Learning 100@30
As part of our 30th-anniversary celebration, Tech & Learning is compiling a compendium of the people most important to the creation and advancement of the use of technology in education. Our first 30 honorees are plucked from the past: the founding fathers and mothers whose inventions, declarations, and theories set the table for where we are today.
