I think the most successful classroom involves a balance of traditional and technological teaching methods. Students, whether for better or for worse, gravitate towards technologies that catch their attention, and teachers are beginning to use those technologies in class. However, the key phrase should be in class -- as in, a literal location. Students will always learn better via human-to-human, face-to-face interaction than they will through any online forum, even including technologies such as Skype. When the teacher is literally present, he or she can provide many more of the kinesthetic tools necessary for a student to learn, as well.
