Slashdot linked to this New York Times article about the Waldorf school in Silicon Valley. It is a school that rejects the idea that students learn better or should learn at all with computers. Personally, I think that a measured approach to technology in K-12 is better than an all-in approach. The Waldorf school apparently takes an all-out approach.
