Chapel Hill waldorf school claims to be about learning, not iPads. Well. Unlike other school which are about iPad and not learning, presumably. Why?
“A computer is a tool of the intellect, and so we wait until the children developmentally reach that stage where they have concrete, abstract thinking before we introduce an intellectual tool,” said Jason Child, interim administrator at Waldorf Emerson.
The article is entirely uncritical towards the claims made by the waldorf school, it could be written by AWSNA’s publicity department. Everything is as usual, then. The only slightly unusual thing is how they explicitly admit they don’t think children are endowed with an intellectual capacity. (Does anyone know what ‘concrete, abstract thinking’ is?)
