“Everyone knows computers help children learn. But I was coming to understand that most parents will do better at sharing and enhancing their children’s learning if they take a hard look at their own learning’. Many need to work at their learning habits; most, even those who are adept at using computers should learn new computer skills; and almost all should work at uncovering assumptions that make them want to impose on their children the content and learning methods of their own school days.”
