Some Ohio Schools Ban All Tech In The Classroom

And the raging debate of the day will no doubt be over schools that ban all technology in the classroom (until the 8th grade). Your thoughts?

It's not because the people behind Waldorf are anti-technology آ— they just believe learning computers in the first 12 or 13 years of a child's life is "not what's best for them." They also believe that kids don't need to be taught how to use computers as they're intuitive machines anyway. By the time the students reach eighth grade (which is the last possible year in the Waldorf system), though, teachers begin allowing them to use computers for basic purposes like research.
