A Silicon Valley School That Doesn’t Compute

Silicon Valley School That Doesn’t Compute

  • Not a computer to be found. No screens at all. They are not allowed in the classroom, and the school even frowns on their use at home.
  • And where advocates for stocking classrooms with technology say children need computer time to compete in the modern world, Waldorf parents counter: what’s the rush, given how easy it is to pick up those skills?  “It’s supereasy. It’s like learning to use toothpaste,” Mr. Eagle said. “At Google and all these places, we make technology as brain-dead easy to use as possible. There’s no reason why kids can’t figure it out when they get older.”
