He talks about Seymour Papert who is a strong advocate of using technology in education - and in fact points out that having conferences about computers in education, is like having conferences about pencils in conferences.
Stager goes on to assert that we are using pre-Gutenberg technology which reinforces the dominance of the front of the room - engagement isn't something you do to others, and education is not about delivery. He also suggests, that kids need to have productive contact with adults. We can use the kids to use computers to express themselves in ways that have never been imagined before. We need to be asking questions around what do the kids do with the computers, as knowledge is a consequence of experience.
