I was reading Charlie Barrow’s Blog the on Sunday and came across a great video that I have not seen before. It was created and produced by Microsoft and displays possible future technologies and communication tools. Check out the embedded video below.
This really captivated my students attention and got them thinking about other technologies that we might see in the future. As they pondered the possibilities I asked them if they would like to be part of creating these type of new technologies. The overwhelming answer was yes. As an educator I saw my opportunity to discuss the importance of a college education and took it. The great thing was they were more responsive and seemed to make the connection that if you really want to create these types of technologies and enter this field you must go on to college. Either way this video opened up some great discussion. Try it out with your classes and let me know what they thought.
