  • Just another rant by a technophobe.

    “The old ways, everyone in a class learning with paper, books and pencils, learning the same things at the same time at the same rate and being punished if they can’t keep up, that’s the RIGHT way!” RUBBISH!

    If personalized, tech-based learning had been standard

    Just another rant by a technophobe.

    “The old ways, everyone in a class learning with paper, books and pencils, learning the same things at the same time at the same rate and being punished if they can’t keep up, that’s the RIGHT way!” RUBBISH!

    If personalized, tech-based learning had been standard when I was in school (I’m autistic and have GAD) I would have had a much more positive educational experience. I could have focused on what I was GOOD at (Life Skills Math, History, Geography, Art, Home Economics and Computer Science) and prepared myself better for the life *I* wanted.

    I’m a high school graduate, a happily married homemaker and I am NOT ashamed. I am HAPPY living a life that is MINE, not one dictated to me by schools and society.
