1. Did you know? 3.0
This video was a great video to watch because it was educational. It`s crazy that India is so big and that their 25% of people with high IQ`s out numbers the whole United States population. Another eye-opener is that in 2025 China will have the most English-speaking people. Another ironic point that was made was how many people use Google and YouTube a minute.
In the future I know I will be like other adults and have to ask people how you use the new computer. In today`s society children know how to use technology better than adults. I think the United States should put more emphasis on education and less on TV programs that have no benefit in their future.
2. Mr. Winkle Wakes
This video ,Mr. Winkle Wakes by Mathew Needleman, is very interesting. I could not imagine waking up 100 years from now. Technology changes every day and this video teaches us as educators that we should keep our students up to date with technology. This video explains how technology has changed, but the teaching of education is still the same. In the video it shows how Mr. Winkle went to the school and the computer has dust on it which meant the students were not even using it. Schools are supposed to teach students how to use computers and get them ready for the future, but after thinking about it they are not.
In the video Mr. Winkle Wakes talks about how the hospital had so many machines keeping people alive. This technology advancement has helped so many people who are sick and who cannot breathe, for example my dad had to be put on a ventilator and if he was a born a hundred years ago they did not have the technology for a machine to breathe for him. Technology is great and I am so thankful for it. Being in college you do not have the chance to go home all the time so now you can go on the computer or phone and facetime or Skype family members.
3. Sir Ken Robinson: The Importance of Creativity by TEDS
Mr. Robinson Talks about how important education is to people. I also agree with him when he explains how teachers are supposed to be educating their student on how to use technology and within five years it will change. I also believe creativity is as important in education as literacy. Sir Ken Robinson says people have been educated to be good workers and not to be creative thinkers. I agree with this because the society is too focused on education and not with what unique ideas people have.
Education has come a long ways from a few years ago. I can remember people being able to get a job with a GED and now people are required, in most fields, to have at least an associate’s degree. Education is stressed in most fields, but education should not be stressed on as much because some students cannot handle college and want to go straight to work after high school. This was a very interesting and humorous video.
4. A Vision for 21st Century Learning by TEDS
Today`s generation is a lot different than many before due to technology. In the past, children were accustomed to playing outside all the time unlike today's children that stay inside and play video games. It would be a great invention for something that makes children more active. We are getting there slowly. In the videos with the technology they had it seem like learning is so much fun because they are able to be a part of doing something other than sitting down and having to just listen to the teacher talk.
5. Glass, schools, and the future
Watching all these videos has taught me a lot and also more ways on how I want to teach. Like in the video with Mr. Winkle waking up 100 years later would be like living on another planet, because nothing would be the same as you remembered it. Technology would be at a place that I cannot even imagine in this day and age.
In the video about the glass tablets seemed unreal. In that video they said they had all the tools to make them know which was also ironic to know what people can do with technology. How they used these in the classroom would be a great addition to schools.
