“I give talks about this sort of thing to educators and at the end they say, “Well exactly how is the computer going to help me teach fourth-grade math?” And that’s exactly the wrong question — there’s not going to be a “fourth-grade.” There’s not going to be a separate math class. There’s not going to be teaching.”
