Technology and You
|Technology and You|
In 1913, Thomas Edison was quoted as saying, “Books will soon be obsolete in schools. Scholars will soon be instructed through the eye.” Technology has evolved a tremendous amount since 1913, but before you examine the history of technology for learning, reflect on your own experience with technology and identify the tools used in your educational experience. Then, access “The Learning Machines (Links to an external site.)” to refresh your memory. Explain how these tools impacted your education or training experience. What has changed since you were in elementary school, and what do you believe will transpire as we move forward? Does technology change everything? Will books be obsolete? Why or why not?
***I have written a response, would like someone to look over it and make any changes or add more to it.***
