Rethink Ch.7

Upon reading this chapter, I came upon the realization that life will continue on long after technology evolves into the next phase of its ongoing transformation.Yes, as more people choose home schooling, their children will not necessarily have as broad an education as they would have received in their local school; but this will not be the end of the world. An individual always has the opportunity to expand upon their learning, be it at 10, 15, 20, 30 or 50 years of age...but this requires the individual to see the benefit and long-term advantages of their personal investment of time. All too often people (of all ages) fail to see the true benefit of advancing their education to the next level, and they miss out on something truly special.
On the plus side of what may be gained is the ability to open a large new window of knowledge to those who have never experienced daylight before. Having instant access to lifelong questions will only enhance their desire to wade deeper into the waters of education. In recent years we've seen people laid waste to abusing the web, spending countless hours in a dark wilderness of void and clammer. This will occur in schools, home and businesses all around the world, but those same individuals can change their destiny with a simple click of the mouse. As an educator, I consider it part of my job to show students the wonder of technology in order to capture their attention and spark new curiosities within an engaged society.
