Old School: Collecting the Dots
Schools as we know them all run on the same principles:
iron all subjects flat
and then proceed, in groups, at a forced march across the flattened plain.
Material is dumped on the students and their responses calibrated;
their interaction and involvements with the material is not encouraged nor taken into consideration,
but their dutifulness of response is carefully monitored.

[leading to] more rapid comprehension, better comprehension, the possibility of gaining a useful degree of comprehension in a situation that previously was too complex, speedier solutions, better solutions, and the possibility of finding solutions to problems that before seemed insoluble.
... developing the new methods of thinking and working that allow the human to capitalize upon the computer's help."
Augmenting Human Intellect, 1962
Replacing chalk/white board with a tablet
"Culture is activity of thought, and receptiveness to beauty and human feeling. Scraps of information have nothing to do with it. A merely well-informed man is the most useless bore...
