We adapt new technologies before we acquire the wisdom to use them properly. That's been true throughout human history, and it's still true today. Everything new comes with a cost - I believe Dr. Turkle just wants us to remember that.

I totally agree...and for sure if we do not set proper objectives and work on them ....then it will not work. I also believe that all that we do always come back to you. I really appreciate reading you.

Great perspective George! I have never considered repurposing our computer labs. I like it! I hope that we can move in this direction to continue to make technology a part of every lesson.
