"Computers are the new primary conduit of communication and learning for this generation."
As a teacher I am amazed at how inept most kids are with computers. I did a simple ctl-c and cmd-tab and ctl-v. Just a simple copy and paste. Students looked at me as if I had just done voodoo.
These are not students new to computers. They were high school seniors who have had 1-to-1 laptop program since 7th grade.
The amount these students do not know is amazing. I taught a college level class as an adjunct. The college students could not use the computer.
The best part of the computer is writing papers. I get longer and better edited papers that are word processed.
Of course the students can get on facebook, games, and other such toys. Real work not really.
