My Open Views
This is a place where I share my open views about things I have learned, observed and experienced. There is NO absolute RIGHT or WRONG answer to a question. They are just my views.
My Open View #13
According to a new study published in the Scientific American (Read the report HERE), the Internet has become the external hard drive for our memories. In another word, when we know that if we can find the information in the Internet, we're less likely to remember it ourselves.
My view: Now I have one more excuse for being absent-minded:-)
My Open View #12
Just a week after starting the first phase of delivering iPads to 640,000 students, administrators of Los Angeles school district halted the project because students could hack into the devices to visit websites blocked by the school. Read the story HERE.
My view: This is a fight between digital immigrants who just come to the cyber world yet try to conquer it and digital natives who already live in the cyber world and do not want to be controlled.
My Open View # 11
The finding of a new survey by the Huffington Post showed that more and more young people are sleeping with their phone while their parents are sleeping with people. Read the report HERE.
My view: I am not surprised by the finding but I am so impressed by the title itself. Their parents are sleeping with "WHAT PEOPLE" :-)
My Open View # 10
According to a report from the Center for American Progress, schools frequently acquire digital devices without discrete learning goals and ultimately use these devices in ways that fail to adequately serve students, or taxpayers. A detailed report is HERE.
My view: It seems that not only hardware and software need updating but humanware also does:-)
