      I would agree Don. I think it should be ongoing and seamlessly integrated throughout our students' education.

      Great question. My completely unscientific response is based on observing my own children. By 2nd grade, my oldest daughters had regularly started to use computers for (and in) school. I think that's in no way too early. The key is to think of it exactly as you described--an ongoing curriculum vs. a point-in-time event.
