If our schools are preparing students so tied to a particular instance
of technology, then we're in deep doo-doo.
Luckily, that's not the reality. It's more the case that the students
can use the new technology and the teachers and schools don't recognize
it. The problem solving skills they learn on a PS2 or Xbox might
actually serve them better than learning how to double space something
in Microsoft Word !
