  1. Dear Dr. Koch,

    Every time I hear the phrase, “Technology is reshaping our children’s minds,” I hearken back to a prophetic short story I read nearly 40 years ago. It was called “Sharing Time” by the science fiction author and former teacher Zenna Henderson. The story was collected in the anthology, “Holding Wonder,” which was published in 1971. The book may very well be out of print, but if you can get your hands on a copy, I encourage you to read it. It’s a story that I would encourage every teacher and parent to read, because while fiction, it gives a graphic understanding the quantum difference that exists between children who have grown up with the internet and those of us born when television was still just black and white.
