One area where this can happen now, if schools take the right steps, is with online homework tools.
That’s vastly better than assigning students homework that doesn’t provide feedback and resembles busy work, be it photocopied word searches in the elementary grades or repetitive math worksheets across the school years.
Those dull, outdated assignments don’t further learning goals and only serve to disengage students.

Students can see right away whether they did something correctly, and they are prevented from practicing strategies incorrectly because these tools let them know when they’re off track.
