The changed world has turned to everything electronic. As Katia said in class “we are fundamentally changing with technology”. In some ways, this could be good but in some ways, it can also be bad. I find it bad because everyone’s heads are on their phones and no one really knows what’s going on around them. They are so caught up with what’s happening on social media that they forget how to verbally interact with others around them. In other words, technology is a huge benefit for people to interact around the world. As Michael Wesch states in his video on youtube that “the web is linking people”. The web allows people from all over the world to connect with each other and for the most part share useful information/ things with one another. I agree that without technology life would be extremely difficult. The internet has become a very popular place for everyone and everything.
When looking at technology in the classroom, I believe you have to build that boundary for only using technology for educational purposes. There are multiple great resources that children can use to help them or allow them to learn in every subject area. I still believe it is important not to base your entire teachings around technology. In the Indigenous ways of learning, I believe it is important for the students to get away from technology and learn from hands-on and experiential learning too. For all the students that will be using technology and the internet, I feel it is so important to remind them of internet safety. Making them aware of all the crazy things that can happen instantly when posting or taking a picture they only want that “one” person to see.
