It may well be so, Nancy (but I've still a few years to serve out!). Aims first, then process and tools to achieve the aims.
When we're tool-centred, the glitter can fool us that the tool is important. Indeed, the prevalence of the tool can lead to a desperate attempt to include a popular tool which may not be very appropriate. For example: "iPods" can be very helpful - but is that how we use them or allow their use?
I remember a friend of mine once (many years ago) gave a children's talk on tools. He showed how you could use a cassette recorder to hammer a nail. It got the job done -once!, but very inefficiently, and it ruined the recorder!
Ian, still laughing. One thing I've found over the last few years as I share some Web 2.0 tools with kids and try to integrate them into curriculum---usage of some applications is ridiculously time consuming for little return. Also my kids bore of stuff easily--one Voki avatar or Animoto video was fine but nobody is breaking down the door to do it again.
