A Silicon Valley School That Doesn’t Compute

[link to www.nytimes.com]

"The chief technology officer of eBay sends his children to a nine-classroom school here. So do employees of Silicon Valley giants like Google, Apple, Yahoo and Hewlett-Packard.

But the school’s chief teaching tools are anything but high-tech: pens and paper, knitting needles and, occasionally, mud. Not a computer to be found. No screens at all. They are not allowed in the classroom, and the school even frowns on their use at home. "

Kinda like in the movie "Braveheart"...when the uncle said, in response to young William's desire to learn to use the sword:

"LEARN TO USE THIS (thumping his forehead...his brain), AND THEN I'LL TEACH YOU TO USE THIS (referring to the sword).

Brain first, tools second...and computers ARE a tool.
