BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A giant of the tech world was in Western New York on Monday.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak was the keynote speaker at the Higher Education Web Professionals conference at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center in Buffalo. We got a brief one-on-one with the high-tech titan. Here's his take on the state of education today:
"I'm seeing that, pretty much, people being educated by today's system are coming out with the same amount of learning, the same knowledge, the same abilities that they had even before computers. I had hoped that computers were going to shock the world because it gave you instant answers to whether you were right or wrong with your answer to question. You got told instantly and instant feedback is good in psychology. I'm not seeing it yet, so I'm hoping and praying. We've got to break down something more than just saying we have to have good teachers, we need better equipment. That's been said for 200 years. So I think we have to change the whole paradigm of education," he said.
At the end of his presentation on Monday, Wozniak was given a Buffalo Sabres jersey.
