After reading the 2010 Horizon Report, I decided to focus on one of the five trends that was discussed within the article. The trend that "Technology continues to profoundly affect the way we work, collaborate, communicate, and succeed. Information technologies impact how people work, play, learn, socialize, and collaborate." All I could think about is recent trends in technology and I am not talking about the use of cell phones. Most of my students wonder how we survived a generation ago without the advent of recent technology. However, what strikes my interest is the way in which we have been able to improve communication in recent years. Some people are able to "work at home" due to the improvements in technology. Military personnel who are oversees are now able to SEE and talk to their respective families through the computer!!!!!!! People interviewing for jobs are able to do this from their home. Heck, you can order groceries and food from restaurants from your computer! These are just a few of the examples of ways in which technology has vastly changed the way we communicate!
