An emphasis on technology actually reduces the amount of learning.

Some of the leaders of Google and Silicon Valley are sending their children to schools that are bereft of technology. Their children use pen and paper and are surrounded by books at school. Technology is seen as a tool that would hamper the learning process rather than enhance it.

It seems to qualify itself when the engineers of these products and ideas would prefer their children not be exposed to technology until they're in 8th grade and beyond.
