Here's an article mostly about political problems at some college I've never even heard of, but to me, the most interesting part is in bold type. A teacher is being relieved of her student newspaper adviser duties and one of the reasons is that , " student staff, because they use Macintosh computers, are not being prepared for the real world".
How absurd and ignorant is that? Again, it's not the platform, dummy. Our students will be truly prepared for the "real world" if computer use is transparent to them. They should be able to sit down at any computer and use critical thinking skills to figure out the basics of a computer. It's about what you produce with a computer, not how you use the machine.
