John Olinda I'm surprised how much resistance I encounter when teaching high school students to use computers. I'm not talking about anything sophisticated. Things like sending email, using office software, basic programming, and scripting. There's always a chorus of "I don't need to know how to do this!" or "I'm not going to use computers for my job!" I just wish I could somehow show them how much tech really overlaps with the jobs they're considering. Maybe I need to have them shadow someone at work and document his or her use of technology?
