Still Reading

I am still reading the book, High-Tech Heretic.  I came across Stoll talking about how the students in kindergarten were using computers and why did they need them at such a young age.  I just wanted to give you my impression of what he said.  He was talking as if the teacher sit back in their chairs and eat bonbons while the students sit and stare at the computer screens all day.   Just because you have a computer in your room doesn’t mean you don’t teach anymore, it just means now you have more options on how and what to teach.  I feel as though he is writing this book for a uneducated audience and trying to persuade them, without facts, that computers are bad for education.  I am glad that most (or at least some) don’t believe everything they read.
