I'm thankful to Barbara Bray who brought my vision to life!
tell the story that culture creates a technology, because that explanation seems the most natural way to understand our history and it puts our choices at the forefront, but we also have to consider the ways in which technology either influences or creates culture.
Though it may sound like it at times, I’m not a pessimist about where these norms are leading us because they’re also enabling social change like the Arab Spring, global connectedness, new economic realities and pathways, and better government.
Because of technology, we can find or create the communities and relationships that fit our version of thriving, whatever that might be.
Create websites, lessons, and projects in no time at all with everything you need at your fingertips.
Clone templates, create projects, match to Common Core State Standards, co-author, allow comments, embed video, control who sees your website, and you always have access to your stuff.
This is your your place in the cloud with all the tools you need in one place with coaching to support community members.
asily match to Common Core State Standards so your students are college- and career-ready.
If we follow this thread to its extension, technology creates itself.
It’s this awareness that technology is creating itself that makes movies like work. Because technologists or historians are often leading the discussion on how technology creates culture, there tends to be this sense of abstractness or extremeness to it. Yes, I did it above, because those extremes are helpful to see.
