"It's the brain!" Emma responds quickly.
"You're Right!" the lab director responds enthusiastically as Emma beams.
I was impressed my kindergartner was so quick with the answer. I was in 6th grade when I learned basic computer skills. Of course, that was 1988 and computers in the classroom were a rarity indeed.
Siting in that computer lab didn't help me feel any younger. All around me were oversize diagrams and lesson modules designed to teach the students to type. I was in Junior High when I took a type class I reminisced to myself.
What are the next generation of kindergarteners going to be learning that will make the generation gap seems like a vast chasam? I shudder to think of it.
