The Dayton Grassroots Dayton Daily show takes yet another twist- now, we’re going to talk about educating kids – and inspiring them to grow their critical thinking skills.
We were inspired by this article in today’s New York Times: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/21/technology/21nerds.html?ref=business (and yes, it’s one of those Harvard types that Greg is now saluting- watch Saturday’s video and then call him a hypocrite).
No, we’re not running for school board- but, we both believe there is more to teaching computing than how to program or how to use Excel. I’ve made an argument before for laptops in primary education- and posted about my hometown and their implementation of Mac’s for all.
If we want the jobs of the future- we’d better have the workers of the future.
