Reading your September issue, I once again find myself asking why people who should know better have allowed a fine word like technology to refer only to computers (Cover Story). In its well-established and still relevant definition, technology means the application of science, especially for industrial or commercial purposes. The teacher who uses a VCR or an overhead projector is using technology; for that matter, so is the teacher who uses a pencil. As sending this via E-mail should indicate, I am not computer-phobic. But as an English teacher, I do care about words. Let's not let this one become needlessly restricted.
