New Technology Encourages Traditional Learning

All of my classes are paperless. It’s not because I’m a tech-wiz; in fact, I’m “all thumbs” when it comes to new technology. I tell students that doing classwork on Blackboard increases their computer literacy and equips them for the 21st century workforce. I really do believe this, but I have another reason: digitizing take-home assignments has let me be a more old-fashioned teacher.

Digitizing Education = Independent Learners

We are no longer prophesizing the digital age of education and the role of technology in learning. We are living it. Students apply online for college. They web-register for classes. They can buy e-textbooks and submit their assignments electronically. The digital format of education that is prevalent from kindergarten to college has developed for the technological generation.

As I Was Saying: December

Everyone has had that moment when they are trapped by an older person or relative who starts sentences with “In my days, we didn’t have.” Then they tell you a story about how your generation is this and doesn’t appreciate that. What you probably got from the story, if you listened, is that the older generations see ours as ungrateful and impatient know-it-alls.

College Activism Not  Dead, Just Different

College Activism Not Dead, Just Different

Some may believe that the passion that often results in student activism is dead. During recent contentious events, such as the Michael Brown shooting, people around the country became vocal on multiple sides of issue. When people looked a colleges and universities to see a reaction, the easiest place to find it was the internet, with photos and videos of students advocating a cause or protesting another. Student activism often begins with a student, but it doesn’t stay in one place.

Do Apps Help or Waste Your Time?

From the minute we wake up, we depend highly on our phones. We use it to check the time, set our alarms, upload pictures on Instagram, or post a status on Facebook.

Disconnecting on Social Media

The use of social media in the United States of America has exploded in popularity in recent years. Social media has taken its place as a main component of modern life. It has practically replaced face to face conversations, phone calls, and letters as our primary form of communication. Many people prefer this to actual interactions due to convenience and the ability to put forth the image of themselves that they want people to see. While it has become extremely popular, the increasing use of social media could...
