“We’re still in the first minutes of the first day of the Internet revolution.” Scott Cook
“The above quote resonates with me strongly, because we are currently living in a culture that not only seems to have endless answers, but endless questions, both which are subject to change. I think of some of the things that we used to talk about in schools, now shifting to something else. For example, I remember once working with my students talking about the importance of staying anonymous online, and now we have shifted to working with our students to develop a positive digital footprint where they actually can be found. I often wonder “what’s next?” Our answers now, may shift, and we need to be able to be adaptable to a constantly changing landscape.”
In education, I have noticed some trends not necessarily changing, but shifting in thought. In learning, we have to be open to change and take what we know and think about how to move forward. Curriculum should not be written in ink anymore, but on a google doc. It seems to only make more sense as we continue to move forward in both school and education.
