The first conversation is a result of our initial meeting, where I learned that this school did not plan on using technology in the classroom and even viewed it as a detriment to education.  It is my email response to the conversation.  The second post is the follow-up email that I received along with my response.  They are long posts but I encourage you to read them. It is good to see things from another perspective.  How would you have responded to a non-tech education? Iron Sharpens Iron Beyond Gutenberg
