Shift the focal length; ask the questions:

1. what computer apps might be appropriate for all kids to learn to some extent, and help develop a cognitive basis for a future in which some kids will learn to code: imho, spreadsheet

2. what computer language would be most valuable for most kids to be exposed to: imho, the answer to that used to be Logo with turtle graphics ... now, I'm not sure.

3. to what extent, and in what subject areas, should most children experience using computers in a way integrated into the curriculum: imho, that's more complex, requires a discussion I don't have time to seed right now.

4. given that most kids (beyond poverty level) are going to use computing devices, and the web: how valuable is it to teach searching as a skill ?
