Technology And Education, Let The Evolution BEGIN [Infographic]

Technology And Education, Let The Evolution BEGIN

As a person that has taught in a technology forum,  I have a love for education and the integration of technology in this field.  Additionally as a parent, I feel as if education MUST change if we want to compete in this technology focused world, and change has to happen at the early childhood level NOT just the college level.  This is imperative if we want to prepare our children for the real world.  As a nation we must refocus our attention on schools, adding technology and addressing all areas that are lacking in regard to creating a more technology focused educational system for the coming generations.

It is really not optional, it is something that must be done and it must start at the Pre-school level if we want our children to be prepared to co-exist with technology in a world that is becoming more technology focused every day.  Actually technology is moving so fast that is not growing at a daily pace but more of a minute by minute pace. This is one of the reasons that embracing technology at the preschool level is imperative.

Although technology has grown,  the way in which we teach our children especially in the public school systems has not changed as much as it needs to, if we want to set our children up for success.  When I was in elementary school, there wasn’t a need to change education to include technology as we were NOT in a technology focused world. However, that is not the case now, changes need to happen at the preschool level and onward to prepare our kids for college which has embraced technology.  Not doing so is creating a divide that we may not have the ability to be bridge if it is allowed to go without being addressed much longer.

Take a quick look at the video below which will give you an idea of our lack of evolution in regard to education and how we seriously need to change how we view education as a whole.

As stated earlier, I grew up during a time when there was a lack of technology in schools, but it was during a different era. Times were very different, and technology was not a primary focus of anything, let alone EVERYTHING as it is now.  However when I ventured into a technology field at the second phase of my career I was immediately hooked and realized the importance of technology and the role that it could play in our lives,  the lives of our children and in our entire future.  This is one of the reasons that I returned to school. Also,  I just needed to be a part of the historical growth of all things related to technology.

When I decided to return to school for Internet Marketing 3 years ago, technology was no where near as advanced as it is now and that was just 3 years ago.  The super quick growth of mobile devices and tables have really pushed the growth of technology at a exponential rate of speed. It is quite astounding! I do not anticipate the rate of growth slowing down anytime soon.

There has been tremendous growth of technology usage at the higher education level which is amazing but I would love to see MORE education initiatives to prepare younger children which could bridge the gap between preschool and the higher education level.  For a person that is heavily involved and vested in the growth of technology I see any growth as  phenomenal thing and I am looking forward to seeing what will come in the not so near future, especially in the area of Pre-K to 12th grade education.

Take a look at the Infographic below to display just how far we’ve come in the usage of technology in the field of education.

Why You Should Consider Learning A Little Code [Infographic]

Coder

I think it is inevitable that we’ll ALL HAVE learn a little code whether we want to or not, if only to be competitive in the evergrowing digital marketing space. I have found that every job that I’ve performed I’ve had to know basic code in order to offer employers and clients the best possible service.

It seems that that may be the norm sooner rather than later. As a world that is going more and more toward digital technologies it may be in ALL of our best interest to venture into the world of coding.

I am feeling like I may need to venture into this field a little bit more. Take a look at the infographic below to give you an idea of the importance that coding will play in our lives in the not so distant future.
