"This hack has many fond memories of educators struggling to operate overhead projectors and those newfangled VCR things."

This hacker has many fond memories of operating the slide projector, filmstrips (with separate audio tape ... ::beep!::) and movie projectors for various teachers who caouldn't even figure out how to load them ... starting in first grade.

Grade school teachers are there to teach the basics (Readin', Ritin' and Rithmatic, or so they told me). They are not now, nor have they ever been, technology proficient, much less tech instructors. Why they haven't collectively stood up and shouted ENOUGH! over all these useless distractions in the classroom is beyond me.

Kids need to learn to walk before they can run.
