For my three week block during my internship I did an integrated unit on technology and globalization. As a launch for the unit we watched the following video Did you know Technology? which is all about the evolution and future of technology in our world.
I still can not get over how prominent technology is in society, and how exponentially fast new and better technologies are being created.
The class followed up the video by predicting what new technologies were to come.
Some of their predictions were:
- A real invisibility cloak
- Flying cars
- A computer smarter then humans ( which supposedly is on its way!)
- Digital teachers ( but what my job!?!)
This activity got me thinking that if technology is so pertinent in our world, and in the life’s of our students ( and our life) how can we ensure that we integrate these technologies into their schooling.
