The computer is an instrument whose music is IDEAS

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.

Re-thinking the way we think
Procedural
"By "augmenting human intellect" we mean increasing the capability of man to approach a complex problem situation, to gain comprehension to suit his particular needs, and to derive solutions to problems... [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."
Douglas Englebart
Augmenting Human Intellect, 1962
