I also am concerned about our college graduates. They are, for the most part, being educated by professors who prefer lecture and test-taking to exploring and simulation! Will these new educational leaders develop the same practices in their students? How can we change the educational system to imbed technology into the core without leaving our humanity behind? I believe that's the essence of this class and our Educational Leadership degree? My perspective is changing and I have more questions then I have answers. But, I also have more hope and motivation to keep exploring the answers to my questions and making changes in my circle of influence.
My other concern is for the development of our children. They are growing up as "screen manipulators" and not merely "screen watchers" (as I grew up). This brings so many questions in regards to development; socially, mentally, culturally, and even physically. Will we be prepared in education to meet this type of student whom we can't even identify yet? I am inclined to believe that we will evolve slowly as in the past and most likely miss some opportunities along the way?
