What should technology be to a learner?

13

A couple of bloggers I follow have benn having a discussion about what technology should be to learners. @frankcrawford and @fraserspeirs have compiled a list as follows:

As a learner, technology should be:
1.Everywhere, ready to use.
2.Easy to use.
3.Desirable to use.
4.Challenging my skills.
5.Sharable
6.Collaborative
7.It should play to my passions
8.Used in useful contexts (from the learner’s perspective)
9.Authentic

Personally, I agree with all this list but would place the importance to items differently.

So what do you think of this list and do you agree?
