Jamiroquai: Virtual Insanity Isaac Asimov: World of Ideas (pt.2, 1988) Ferris Beuller's Day Off From the past few weeks of this MOOC I have learned that technology itself is actually a very disruptive and destructive 'entity' and that, if left unchecked and unbalanced, has the potential for a very dark and dystopic future. But, and here's the 'thing', it's not technology itself that's at fault, but how we allow it to affect our lives.

However, if nurtured and allowed (encouraged?) to mature, technology and how we see/use it also has the potential to enhance and enrich each and every learner and teacher who uses it. Here's the other 'thing', we're so focused on technological development do we slow down enough to allow the current technology to mature and settle into a pattern and everyday life before we go hunting the next best thing?.

Your choice - which future would you prefer? From this ... .. to this, ... ... to this? Where are we going? Where have we come from? And this: from 1988 - remember, this is before Tim Berners-Lee and the World Wide Web ... ”How should we respond, as teachers and learners, to the idea that the internet damages our capacity to think?”

Should the question actually be aimed not at the “Internet as a damaging element to our capacity to think” but rather that we are letting the Internet damage our capacity to think? Remember 'Robbie' ...?
