My Favorite Paragraph This Week

Software developer and teacher Fraser Speirs writing about transitioning his classroom of iMacs to iPads:

“It’s the end of an era, but the beginning of a new one. A new era in which computers serve the needs of children and teachers. An era in which computers are not special artifacts sequestered in a purpose-built chamber into which children are ushered in hushed tones to have their weekly audience with The Computers.”

I never enjoyed being in computer labs (as a student; I’ve never taught in one), so I like that “computing” in all its forms can happen anywhere.
