Take a moment...

Ok, so I have been reading through some of my classmates blogs about the importance of technology on our world today. Whether we need to tech our students how to print or just have them start typing. I think we are loosing site of the importance of technology on the world. Don't get me wrong technology is great, and very important to most of us, but if we want any of our students to be worldly we may want to approach it a different way.
I was sent this website a while ago, but I think it might do some good for some of us to look at it once and awhile. See if it changes some of your thinking.
For those interested there is also a book (yes in paper form) based of of this.

That is a profound thought. That is the first time I have seen the video and it is astonishing. There are so many things that need to be done and not enough people are willing to see and do something about it.

Hi,
just watched the video. It was awesome and so matches my thinking. I especially liked the part where so little people have a computer - HOW TRUE !! And I doubt very much that all those people struggling to find food even give a thought to internet and the www. I loved the video because we forget that so many people can not afford technology and what about all those people?!? That is why I made the posts on my blog because I think the money can be spent in better ways.
