Dr. Wolfram was quick to point out that he is not a teacher and did not design any of his software for educational use. BUT he does support using his programs to teach kids math and science. It is very refreshing to hear a keynote speaker at an educational conference own the fact he does not teach/work in a school. It becomes very frustrating when people spend an hour talking about the change that needs to happen in education and they do not even work directly with kids. Dr. Wolfram recognizes and addressed the fact that he builds software and supports the people that have ideas about how to use it in the classroom. Mathmatica and Wolframalpha.com will inevitably change how math is taught in schools. The hope is that teachers began to use a more creative, problem-based approach to teaching math. Otherwise students will solve all of their homework questions via sites like Wolframalpha, but they will not have any idea how to use these problems based in reality.
