Sketchpad and technology

We have been using Sketchpad along with Serra's wonderful text
Discovering Geometry for the past three years. It is has been a
rejuvenating experience for me to see my students attack "traditional
geometry" problems with the computer . . . in one 50 minute session, 75%
of my students "discovered" four circle theorems which normally would
have taken up 2+ days of two column proofs. I am having to rethink very
seriously the role of technology in mathematics . . . if the TI-92 can
factor quadratic polynomials with the touch of a few keys, how much time
should I "hammer" away at FOIL?
