planet of the apes...

Chimps memorizing numbers. Can you do this?Now it gets a bit harder. Can you do this?Or this? Can you imagine schools in which children are taught by computers to do similar things? Some can.

Personally, I would prefer real teachers. Arthur C. Clarke said, "a teacher who can be replaced by a machine should be." Using the same logic, a mother who could be replaced by a nipple should be. But there is a lot more about education than delivery of information, and there is a lot more about being a mother than delivery of milk.

Make, fix and create...
