On teaching photography, I think you are 90% correct. I have not taught
photography, but I've taken courses from some excellent teachers and
the important things they taught me were not the technical/chemical
stuff in the darkroom. I had a young photojournalist visit with my students
a few years back. It blew my mind that she was using a digital camera then.
I shoot digital but I will never give up my SLR. I love the feel of it
it has too damn many gismos on it. Can you believe it even focuses for me.
When I got my first SLR, it had a built in light meter. I thought I was cheating
then. But today I will start my grandchildren off with digital cameras.

I deleted most of the message, but I saved this much:
When teaching a 15-year-old how to see light, how to use light, how to
frame, how to tell a story with an image, how to communicate visually,
to work with the elements and principles of design, etc., I find that
digital camera is a better teaching tool than a 35mm camera because of
speed - the learning feedback loop is much shorter.
