At the 1925 meeting of the American Psychological Association, Sidney Pressey, a psychologist at Ohio State University, exhibited the first “teaching machine.” The device had four multiple-choice questions and answers in a window, along with four keys. If the student thought the first answer was correct, the student pressed the first key; if the student was right, the next question was revealed. If the first choice was not correct, the initial question remained in the window until the student pressed the right button. The machine kept track of the student’s responses. What can we learn from looking at the past 90 years or so of ed-tech -- the predictions and the practices and the technologies we've developed?
