I was strolling through my TL on twitter and saw this cool picture of the evolution of technology. It inspired me to blog about it. This picture illustrates how technology has evolved from the beginning of school to what it will look like in the future. I totally agree that students will only carry a tablet instead of their book bag full of books in the near future. Many schools in the USA have implemented 1:1 initiatives. I can't wait to see when Schools will have no need for paper and pencil. I predict textbooks will be obsolete by 2020. In learning magazine predicted this and I totally believe it's coming.
Flashback: When I was in school.. There were no iPads, tablets, laptops, or smart phones. I never would have thought technology would have flourished so far. I've always been a techno girl, I always wanted the coolest technology that was out. I remember begging my mom for a pager. I was the student who had the different color pagers or the cool flip phone.
I can't wait To see what the future has in store. I can not wait to see what technology start up company invents next.
