  16. “In education, this means the end of the one-way passing

    along of knowledge to students. For they already live in a “field” of knowledge created by new media which, though different in kind, is yet far richer and more complex than any ever taught via traditional curricula.”

  52. ...If you were to knock on the door of one

    of these critics and say “Sir, there are flames leaping out of your roof, your house is burning,” under these conditions he would then say to you, “That’s a very interesting point of view. Personally, I couldn’t disagree with you more.”...
