Steve Wozniak to educators: “be brave, use the new technology”

03/07/2011 – Computers have certainly aided learning in recent years, but they haven’t yet fostered the promised revolution in education that has been discussed for over 40 years, according to Apple cofounder, educator, and all-around geek Steve Wozniak. Woz made the comments during a keynote discussion at Abilene Christian University’s Connected Summit last week, discussing his views on the use of technology in education and the need to adapt teaching and learning to be more effective. According to Woz, we need to focus more attention on younger students before they begin to adopt a perception that they are “failures.”

“Education has always been a big part of my life,” Wozniak told the assembled crowd, which included Connected Summit attendees from nine different countries and a large contingent of ACU students and faculty. Woz discussed his early fascination with computers and logic circuits, which led to his participation in the Homebrew Computer Club at Stanford in the 1970s.

Woz designed and built what would eventually become the Apple I computer, so he shared his design with the Homebrew club. “I built that thing to help everyone in the club understand how to make their own computer,” he said. (It was Steve Jobs who convinced Woz to turn it into a product, which led to the founding of Apple in 1976.) Woz was intensely shy, and, like many geeks, socially awkward. “But I found that I could build these computers and show them to people, and they would want to talk to me about them,” he explained. “It was a language I could speak.”
