“When I was 10, I took a computer course on something called ‘PowerPoint’ where I got to explore topics on this thing called the ‘World Wide Web.’ Suddenly I could access information far beyond the encyclopedias at home and display what I learned on slides with pretty pictures I downloaded. It sounds simple now but I was overwhelmed by the new tools available to me.”
