My opinion on how school is going to be in 100 years time...
Teacher: Today we will be learning about the start of the World Wide Web War on January 19/20, 2012, now turn to page 394 on your Kindles
Student: My great grandparents fought in that war. On their Tumblr blogs.
Teacher: You must be very proud of them
Meanwhile, the online grading database is still down…
How would you feel if you went to school tomorrow and had all of your books taken away and replaced with an iPad?
I was reading this article about the technology of the iPad and how Apple is making educational apps, books, and games more available for academic use. What do you think?
WHAT DO YOU MEAN “NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME”?
I JUST HAD FINALS.
IF THERE EVER WAS A TIME THAT THESE GRADES NEEDED TO BE AVAILABLE FOR ANALYSIS, CONTEMPLATION, AND EXAMINATION AND BE EASILY ACCESSIBLE VIA THE INTERNET THAT TIME IS NOW.
THAT TIME IS NOW.
SO WHY DOESN’T THE ONLINE GRADING DATABASE KNOW THAT?
So if they are not available at this most urgent and pressing time, when will they be available?
When, online grading database? When?
Why is being a nerd bad? Saying ‘I notice you’re a nerd’ is like saying ‘hey, I notice you’d rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you’d rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?’
When I was in second grade I had a “facts about me” book, and on one page I had to list my fears.
There were more, but I think my #1 fear was pretty valid…
Voldemort, scarier than CAVITIES.
