My 4th grader uses a computer for just about every thing. The one thing that made me smile is midterm they start an engineering class. And the base for building models-LEGOS! I was glad to hear of the simple hands on approach.

IMO neither news broadcasts nor school programing should have commercials/advertising in them. Talk about slanted information! School kids truly are a captive audience and are taught to believe that what they learn in school is indisputably correct. A vast majority of adults who have been through the school system have been similarly programed. They seldom question what is presented. My perhaps biased view anyhow.

If it is -- my wife's eyes must get mighty strained ever time I mention buying something that she thinks I don't really need.

 

Now that I think of it she did start wearing reading glasses

"Allows students to interact more naturally w/ their PC"

Now WTF is natural about interacting with a PC ??

When I was a kid , I had to get off my ass to turn the channels on the B&W - TV .

Bah , just give then a trophy for participation , in hope they don't grow up a loser.

     When my grandson was in 8th grade I went to school and talked to his "computer science teacher". Asked why they did not introduce the students to the Linux operating system. The man had no idea what I was talking about. I'm not convinced he knew what an operating system was, or what it did. The same grandson was in a small engine class, needed an engine to work on. I sent a 3 1/2 horse trash pump with 30$ and instructions to bill me for any more parts needed to make it run. My grandson disassembled and reassembled the engine, "rebuilt the carb" and he and the instructor spent three class periods trying to start it. Both my grandson and the instructor gave up on it.   Sorry. some one mentioned public school.  Don

They certainly are full of themselves, but the eye roll part cracks me up MH81 because my 5 year old granddaughter gives that to my son and his wife. They don't think its so funny but I find it hilarious.

If you've never heard of comedian Jeff Allen, check him out.
Jeff said every time his kids do something to his stuff, his Dad got happier.
Said his Dads doc told him he was one grandkid away from being able to quit Prozac...
