I may have been too blunt, and if my message has come across as an insult I 
apologize for that. Let me try again:

If you are trying to teach children that are unwilling to use pen and paper 
putting them in front of a computer doesn't help you and them one bit. As a 
starting programmer you'll have to spend a lot of time in front of your 
computer that may be better spent with your students.
