  9. 9. What we need to consider about the computer has nothing to do with its efficiency as a teaching tool. We need to know in what ways it is altering our conception of learning.<br />Postman, Neil. (1993) Technopoly.<br />
  10. 10. The purpose of technology is to facilitate learning, and if a teacher begins with this end in mind technology itself should tend to disappear, not dominate.<br />
  11. 11. Myth #1: Putting computers into schools will directly improve learning; more computers will result in greater improvements.<br />

  15. 15. We should view the computer as one of those tools, a weapon in our arsenal or devices.... that we employ with our students to achieve our objectives.<br />
  16. 16. Don't think about the technology first. Think about what you want to teach first. Then think about how the technology can enhance what it is you are trying to teach.<br />
  17. 17. Part of educating students for the future is equipping them to function within a technology rich environments and to help them overcome any fear, or anxiety they may feel with regard to technology <br />
  18. 18. We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology.  We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology.  This is a prescription for disaster.  We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.  ~Carl Sagan<br />
