now if only i could get a translation of all the acronyms my teenage cousins use on myspace, facebook, and in emails!
i feel moderately illiterate to the internet language of the youth, and i keep up with technology at a reasonable pace. i can't imagine the natural smoothness with which technology upgrades integrate into the lives of young people. will the steady rate at which older generations passed down practical knowledge to younger generations be unrecognizable to my children - considering their technologically modern world will require new and different skills every couple years?
i didnt use a computer in school until i was a teenager. teaching would be less fun if i couldnt prepare power point presentations with pretty pictures - but there's a lot to be said for the old "chalk and blackboard" method as well.
am i just getting crabby and old and tired of relearning old skills with new software?
