As a child I was always interested in sketching and drawing and making things.
I was fascinated by model aircraft and construction kits which were called “trix” and “meccano”.
I worry about students who might feel that the power of sophisticated equipment has somehow rendered the humble pencil if not obsolete, then certainly second rate.
I have never been embarrassed to state what might be self-evident,
So it will come as no surprise to suggest that the pencil and computer are,
If left to their own devices, equally dumb and only as good as the person driving them.
