This last semester I worked on a group presentaiton for my Educational Psychology as part of my final. I was paired with three other students in the program. The presentation was on "What Makes a Good Teacher?" I wanted to cry. None of my partners knew what sound academic research was, how to use APA format, their writing was lackluster, and hated giving presentations. These are potentially future Wisconsin teachers. I was derided for pointing out that they were getting into a field that requires nonstop research and presentation. ::sigh::

They are called computers simply because computation is the only significant job that has so far been given to them.
