Many schools are now even requiring children to take laptops to school, and while it's understandable that they want to educate children and equip them for the workforce, it can be overdone. Additionally, technology is constantly evolving, so schools may teach one thing, taking time away from normal subjects, only to later find it's obsolete. As an example, I was taught Basic programming in high school; this programming language is rather obsolete now, and that was an entire course that took away from my learning something that might have been useful. We need to balance this education out with subjects that teach basic skills, like writing and math.
People learn in all different ways and adding technology to the workplace can help educate because people can see media or hear media. This is a great way to learn when used responsibly. Of course it can be overused but when used appropriately it is a great way to learn.
