It's not about the tool!!

"When you go to the hardware store to buy a drill, you don't actually want a drill, you want a hole, they don't sell holes at the hardware store but they do sell drills, which are the technology used to make the holes. We must not lose sight that technology for the most part is a tool and it should be used in applications which address educational concerns" (Fletcher, 2006)
