Did you know?

That movie really opened my eyes to a lot I had no idea about. I never realized just how far technology and education have come. It always amazes me, when I am doing something on the computer and my mom will be mesmerized by it because, when she was my age she didn't use technology like I have. Myspace is also one of the most amazing things right now. It is the easiest way to keep in touch with people. Now, if you want to see how someone is doing, instead of calling, you just email or text them. I believe children really are the future. As teachers, we have to be the ones to open there eyes to the world and teach them about technology and how it is going to benefit them in the future. After watching this movie, I made my mom watch it too and she was amazed. It blows my mind how The United States is a free country yet other countries have double the college graduates we do. People aren't taking advantage of the opportunity they have to get an education and better themselves. I believe one day there are going to be very few jobs that don't require a college education, due to technology.

  1. The facts about college really blew my mind too! I couldn't believe that other countries had more graduates in the year 2006. I was completely oblivious to that knowledge I guess. America always seems to pride itself on being faster, more equipped, and even smarter...but yet the college graduate rates are at least an easy million apart.
