Educators must prepare children for an uncertain world.
I was just talking to Lee about this the other day: If you watch Oprah, you will have noticed that she has been using Skype a lot, which is very innovative. If you pay attention, though, sometimes the quality is low in terms of the video and audio. It may be the kind of connection, the kind of webcams people are using, whatever. But I couldn’t help but think how our children and grandchildren may see clips from these shows and laugh, thinking how antiquated it is. Here we are thinking that we’re super innovative and on the cutting edge of technology, and our offspring will look at some of this stuff like we look at 8-tracks and vinyl records.
On one hand, the direction in which technology is going (at an extremely exponential rate) is very exciting, but it can also be quite frightening. Please take a minute to watch this video (about 2-3 minutes). It was really funny at first, but then it wasn’t. It makes you think:
This may be something you want to pass along.
