Technology, learning, and simple pleasures

Two views of technology and learning:

A mom's view:   "Screen time for kids - is it learning or a brain drain?"
  Are schools really missing out on a potent tool for learning?   "Tech and Learning: At Odds in Schools and in Sync Everywhere Else"

Thursday's Poetry Slam with 2-3's and 4-5's in berets was a delight.  The poems about what brings them joy were my favorites: food, friends, family, pets, playing, laughter - even school.  Simple and potent pleasures!

Leave Those Kids Alone in the latest The Atlantic makes me feel fierce about protecting simple pleasures for our children.
