    My classroom of the future would look exactly like the classroom of the 1950's. The computers role in advancing education is greatly overrated.

    A computer is nothing more than a tool to quickly perform the fundamental steps of whatever application a person is doing. Every person still needs to know how to manually perform the fundamentals.
