We are frequently told that students MUST have access to computers in order to learn. I remind people that the folks who were smart enough to design and build the computers and the internet infrastructure did not have computers in the classroom. The folks at NASA who successfully sent people to the moon and got them back did not have computers in the classroom growing up. Watch the Apollo 13 movie. The team trying to figure out how to get the crew back to earth was working with slide rules. We need less worry about technology in classrooms and more effort educating.
