    student/teacher divide

    At our school many of us older teachers have not become nearly as proficient as our students. In fact our young IT teacher seems to be virtually every tenured teacher's enemy. Literally the subject of many slander sessions for his know-it-all attitude and relentless prodding. I often feel like I'm being mocked by students using computers for work and have many times suggested cutting them out of the process rather than promoting them. There is a major divide currently, at least here on the American side of the pond. I feel that there is something not right, don't know how to fix it, but somehow doubt that you tubes are the answer.
