Technologies used in classrooms should be researched before they are used. I think using untested technologies in classrooms is unethical.
Pharmaceutical products undergo extensive testing before they are approved and sold to patients. Even after they are approved, drugs and medications that are found to be dangerous to human life are withdrawn from the market. The cost of testing is borne by the pharmaceutical companies that develop the drugs and medicines.
However, in education, tools of technology are sold without any prior testing. Research is conducted after the products are purchased. Such research treats children and adults as guinea pigs.
I think that the use of technological tools in education is unethical because they are not tested before they are purchased. Many such products also do not improve learning. I think that corporations that develop and sell technological tools should bear the cost of doing research and only be allowed to sell products that actually improve learning of content.
Schools should also be able to return any products that they purchase if such products do not perform as advertised.
