Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine. - Nikola Tesla
If educational technology were a fad it would have died out in the late 80s. Instead, we have found that, like Moore's law, technology has advanced beyond what anyone could have conceived in the late 20th century. We have witnessed the advent of pagers, AOL, car phones, cell phones, the Internet, tablets, 2g, 3g, 4g, 5g, social media, immediate information available at our fingertips. We have surpassed the information age and are now in the age of Big Data.
To bury our heads in the sand and conform to 19th-century pedagogical methods is a disservice to the students we teach. No longer should we ask "will this last" but we should be asking "what is next"? Because that is what we are preparing students for... the future. Let's keep what works, let's throw away what doesn't, and let's innovate for the future! Join me, and let's make a difference!
