Summary Post C4T # 1

I was given " The Thinking Chick" as my teacher. Her first post was called, "The Magic Wand." She made this particular post after she read an article called, "The 21 Things That Become Obsolete This Decade." She talked about her first palm pilot, VCR's, and landlines. Those barely exist now. We now have better phones, dvd players and cell phones as opposed to land lines. I wrote how at my mothers the other day, we watched a VHS in her VCR and how it seemed annoying having to rewind it. My teacher read another article titled, "21 Things That Will Become Obsolete in Education by 2020." She wrote about how she agreed that the things listed would be obsolete, but since she has found education slow to change, it may take longer than 10 years. Two things on the list were desks and paper. Her second blog post was called "The Hole." I enjoyed this post. She wrote about how she bought a house in Seattle, Washington while living in Bangkok, Thailand. She used technology to do everything. She had papers faxed, used Skype, had pictures sent from iPhones, bought all her furniture online and a lot more. She did not give all the credit to technology though. She gave a lot of credit to her friends and family for helping her. I find it amazing that she was able to do all of that from across the world. Technology has come a long way and will continue to amaze us!
