What An Amazing Possibiity. . .

Communication has changed. Think of the time when people lived above their place of work - they were able to communicate with family regularly, or in agriculture where they worked on the farm where they lived. Then came the industrial era where people worked in factories with no access to communicate with their family unless they were perhaps in management and had a phone at their desk. Now, today, with the internet, IM, Skype, texting, Facebook and etc., studies show that people are able to be in direct communication with their family and friends as never before. So though some think that technology is preventing people from talking with each other, it is really increasing that communication in a way that has never been before. I know that I have greater communication with my husband and kids than my mother did. I have greater communication with my mother than I ever did growing up.

Check out this November 2009 TED Talk presentation by Stefana Broadbent on "How the Internet enables intimacy". Good to ponder.

Stefana Broadbent: How the Internet enables intimacy

I believe we are in an era of opportunity for incomparable learning in our educational institutions if we take advantage of the communications possibilities via technology. We can capitalize on what is available and learn more, deeper, further, differently, etc. (you get the picture) or we can restrict it and pass by an unlimited growth possibility.

What are you going to do in 2010 to move forward engaged learning for all?
