DIGITAL IN THE CLASSROOM: HOW DO WE INTRODUCE IT INTO THE CLASS

“How do we make use of all the opportunities?”


digital learning

I have spoken about this subject in short in previous posts. And that is the introduction of digital technologies into the classrooms for learning. We have already a plethora of computers that were seen as something revolutionary in the previous decades. But now, a laptop or desktop is outdated. We are now moving into a space of AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality). Eye wear and full headsets that will incorporate a whole new way pf learning. A new way which will put the student into a gaming world literally. How will effect the current way of learning and teaching? Because as I also said before the credentials for educators will increase as well.

initials users

As with the introduction of any form of technology, the beginning will be so much fun. But then after a while it becomes the norm. The initial users for schools that are able to afford it will show an increase in grades. It will be this new impressive way to get students involved and engaged. Now, whichever schools are able to use these will most likely not be public schools unless someone donates to these institutions. But hopefully the technology that could increase leaning find its way throughout schools all over America.

all about the money

Like I said before, when schools are able to bring together the finances for the new technology that will aid in a school’s overall performance, then you’ll see a slight jump of improvement then a capping off point. But unless you have some really wealthy alumni that give, you will not see too many public schools with the capabilities for learning that is in the future to come. Someone I know was developing a headset for schools. But relative to the amount of schools out there, it’s not enough money yet to finance. I think technology is easier to bring cost down today when the technology is perfected. Bu that is the downside of bringing to life anything great. Money is not everything, but it’s very important.

IN NEED OF DIRECTION: WHAT SHOULD I STUDY IN SCHOOL

Interior of Abandoned Building

“Choose what fits you.”


that thing that makes you, you

When choosing an educational path in life, you want to pick the thing that sets you apart from everyone else. But you also want to select a path that will aid in your growth after college. And that is the thing that your mind wraps around which will benefit you in your growth in life. It’s more than just going to school, it’s the foundation for you entering life.

topics of interest

Sit down and compile a list of topics you want to study. Write down the top 50, then narrow it down to 25. After that, narrow it down to 10, and from there 5, then 3. And of the top 3, choose what works for you. I know 50 sounds like a lot, but you want to give yourself as many options to choose from as possible. But I will say, once you narrow down the choices of what you really like down to a top 5, start trying out these options. You’ll know what clicks and what doesn’t.

honesty is key

Are you getting better at what it is you do? Be honest, know what you are doing is your thing. So many people think just because they want to do something, it means it’s what they should be doing. Not necessarily so, what’s good for you is not what you may want to do. It may be on the basis of how good are you at what you’re doing. So knowing what educational material your brain starts to wrap around will give you the courage to step into the world.

build your base

On your road to success in your educational pursuits, be sure to grow mentally. Go outside the classroom, and create your knowledge that you are not being taught in the classroom. If you solely depend on a degree alone, you’ll find yourself in serious trouble. You will only have the foundation, but nothing more. Imagine walking around New York City, with all these skyscrapers, and smack dab in the middle of all of them, a foundation, and nothing else. It’s out of place and a cause for concern. So build, build, and continue building.

DIFFICULTY ADJUSTING: WHY PEOPLE ARE PUSHING BACK AGAINST THE TECH SHIFT

“What we doing to ourselves?”


Recently, people have found it hard to cope with  the idea that jobs in the United States are moving out of the country. But not just any jobs, the industrialized jobs that once built this nation. Now, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any jobs left in America. It just means that the marketplace has shifted around. We are moving away from an industrialized nation to a more technologically savvy nation. And that is something that so many people did not see coming. People were under this impression that we’re going to work in factories for life. But everything in society changes, everything. And that you have to be able to shift with the constant change. So now everyone is mad.

But mad, mad at what? We have always been a nation that has made these types of shits in technology. Yes, jobs are shrinking in one area, but we will be making strides in other areas. And the fact that we are in an open marketplace, this creates so many more great opportunities. Yet so many are resistant to change in our society. No matter if it’s social, economic, or educational. Changes have to take place; this is how one nation stays ahead of another. And if America starts to lag behind, then this nation as a whole will start to  take losses. So what must be done to prepare for the shift that is taking hold in our society? They must face the inevitable, and move with everything else in our world.

As technology progresses, products and services will become more efficient and productive. Not only that, but cost will drastically be brought down.  And no longer will you need the labor of people to get a job done. Because a computer will be able to handle what people used to do. Meaning, we as a society will become more of an informational, operational, managerial, group of people. The man or woman who can use their hands to perform a task is a dinosaur. Now, what used to take pain-staking hours of labor can be done in some instances with the click of a mouse. Once again, does this mean jobs are loss, absolutely, but not permanently. Old jobs are removed and made way for new opportunities. Then why are so many people raging against the machine? Because of the time to put into learning something new.

And in the end, that’s the biggest concern with the tech industry taking hold. It’s not that people are down and out. It’s that people start to age and get set in their ways and don’t want to learn anything new. You are more than capable, but you’re so used to the status quo, you think it should stay that way forever. But remember one key aspect of change while you’re fighting it. The change that able you to be who you are, doing what you’re doing was pushed against. Yet the push was ineffective, which laid ground for you to be you. So you have to adjust and figure your shit out, there’s no other way.
