Here in Spain politicians thought that they could improve the education problem by giving latops to the students instead of addressing the real problems and without providing educational contents. A computer can be a god teaching tool. for example: *A virtual tour of Pompeii using Google Street View *Some years ago I watched a cool 3D animations of various celular processes. I wish I could watch this in my high school days, it would have helped a lot. *Use plotting tools to manipulate mathematical functions. *A virtual laboratory But as far as I know they use the latops only for word processing or ebooks.

The degree of technical confidence is inversely proportional to the level of management.
