A Vision For The Future
I see digital technology as an area of concentration that is at once responsible for creating the foundation upon which the information age has been built while at the same time setting the direction for exploring new ways of connecting people to each other. As educators, we have the obligation to inspire our students to see the world not as a static set upon which perform their individual scripts, but rather a multi-dimensional universe that can be traversed at any moment without the constraints of space or time. Our mission should be to facilitate an interactive approach to learning. Discrete teachable moments must be able to be mixed among individuals as easily as textual artifacts. Our students will be required to preserve and extract unique moments in time while simultaneously connecting these moments with those of others who have been or will in the future find themselves enveloped in identical spatial locations.
