The 'why', not the 'how'

Will Richardson discusses Kevin Clark's article (not) about the technology and adds his thought, worth citing:
It's getting to be less and less about the tool and more and more about the opportunities the tools create, the "why", not the "how." And the "why we should use any of these tools" question is all about their capacity to build connections and community.

I couldn't agree more.
I feel embarrassed whenever educators speak about technology as if they were toys to play with and forget about the "why", the opportunities they could create for communication and learning. And these have to be connected with the aims of the subjects we teach.
