I agree with this part of the post: "There is a tendency here to imply a zero-sum principle to humanness: the more the tech can do the less it means to be human. This feels wrong to me and isn't helpful in an educational context." But I don't agree with what I think is the main point, which is to focus on human creativity as the differentiator. We'll find, I think, that we can't think of human activity in the age in a nice neat Bloom's taxonomy package. We'll be looking at completely new human activities outside the domain of the taxonomy - valuate, maybe. Or obviate. Whatever. When it's not zero sum, it means we're adding something that wasn't there before. And that's what I expect.
