Computers in Education
buzzed, B&W
So after I just finished writing a response to this thread I started over on Slashdot about computers in education, I saw that my brother had posted a link to this article about computers in education on his del.ic.ous page with the comment that "obviously teachers / methodology are more important."

Tony's absolutely right in that teachers and methodology are key - the Christian Science Monitor article he linked to even says "The most thorough studies have found computers to have little effect either way, he said, although some guiding principles are beginning to emerge." I'm personally still a huge advocate for computers, and technology in general, in education. Yes there's definitely a learning curve, and people are going to have to find ways to effectively utilize them, but the potential benefits seem huge in my mind. Of course, I'm someone who believes calculators are beneficial in the classroom . . .
