I think basic skills like drawing from observation come first.
Students need to concentrate on learning how to see before
they spend too much time with new technology. They probably
said much the same thing about the compass or the camera
obscurer or photography.

If they are using the technology to problem solve visual
problems then it is a valuable tool. Given the proper balance
of guidance and freedom students will create all kinds of
bridges we could never imagine.

       the monkeys and evolution will be taught in schools again.
