Another view on digital learning

"The chief technology officer of eBay sends his children to a nine-classroom school" in Los Altos, California, The New York Times reports. "So do employees of Silicon Valley giants like Google, Apple, Yahoo and Hewlett-Packard."
But the school's chief teaching tools are anything but high-tech: pens and paper, knitting needles and, occasionally, mud. Not a computer to be found. No screens at all. They are not allowed in the classroom, and the school even frowns on their use at home.
