Embrace the learning curve: One reason children learn additional languages more easily than adults do is that they’re willing to speak the target language without fear of sounding childish. The same is true of technology. One of the things that holds us back is fear of looking foolish.

Were you like me and wished you could go apologize to the poor kids who had you for a teacher that year? You’ll feel the same way about technology! You will work with it for a while and then realize that what you’d done before was terrible, but that’s okay. It’s exactly the way the pattern goes.
