Less is more?

I honestly don't know what Apple is saying heading into his conclusion with: "Unless these are fully integrated in a school program at all levels, I would hesitate to advocate the use of hte new tecnology in the curriculum. To do less makes it much more difficult for students to think critically and independently about hte place the new technolgy does and should have in the lives of the majority of people in our society." Is he saying that we should allow them in until students have philosophized on their place in society? I was just unclear on that point.

  1. I think he was saying that there's a danger of too much reliance on computing and not enough on pen-to-paper, common sense work. In other words, you can't REALLY apply the technology effectively unless you understand the theories and functions of what it is you're using technology FOR.
