Recently I visited a school to talk about technology implementation issues. Yes, despite the fact that we’ve come so far, there were issues to talk about.
It was a good reminder of the fact that as technology changes, or develops and improves, we as humans are essentially still the same. Our collective knowledge is growing, and we are making great advances in progress, but we as physical human beings are largely the same as we always have been. Some may say that this is not quite true because we are getting taller, living longer or becoming more resilient, but I’m referring more to the fact that our basic physical bodies are the same. In an increasingly digital world, you could say that we’re analogue, and always will be. Why is this pertinent with regards to my recent school visit?
