Well, Apple is doing a good effort to introduce very good machines (I think most of the time overated systems) in to the school system in the US. Now, the idea for me sounds like fun but... in my time as an student in the US (senior year and college), I have found that the technology helps very little in education if you do not have a good teacher or study program. I mean, my senior year as an exchange student in the US was a joke, I had a problem with the math teacher because what his teaching was wrong. In college we used SGI machines (Indigo 4 and O2) just to name some, and one of my friends is working as a cashier in a bank and the other one is a sales representative in a online music store. I saw that coming in that institute. I see that too much of the culture in the US relies in technology but in such fantastic way. The .com was a sign of it. and I see the tv shows in the discovery channel saying "the solution of mankind is to go to space", it is not cheaper to really educate poeple about overpopulation than creating another race of human beens to cross the universe? I know I'm going to far in to the subject but... what is the future that technology is selling to us? At the beganing the internet was develop to create a parallel universe where all could be free (I remember that in 1995-97), yeah, to echange phorno I would say. Now, talking about us here, the fact of having Photoshop in your computer makes you a graphic designer? where is the education? graphic designers can do lots of things better than a Photoshop user. I know the softwares are easyer every time but... are we developing the education based technology? And what are we gonna do when the technology is not longer there? I would say, put all what you can in your mind, takes time but is accessible and is always with you where ever you are.
