“Some people are really drawn to technology and I liken them to artists.” ~ Mitchell Baker
I’m sorry but you can’t tell me that e-books are a passing fad. I read an article the other day that convinced me that we have only begun to realize the magnitude of advancing digital technology.
The article was about eight year old children who are learning computer code in schools. The article supports the importance of keeping school curriculum current and relevant with advancing technology and doing away with outdated ways of teaching and learning.
Young children are those who, in the future, will drive independent publishing and digital technologies to areas that we can adults can not even fathom. We can personally resist reading e-books and continue reading books in print, but the reality is that e-books are becoming a growing presence in our world. Electronic books are what the next generation of readers will want because they are so accustomed to using digital technology. In the end, it will become all about supply and demand.

It concerns me that if American schools do not have the resources to keep up with other countries, our workforce will be supplying products that people don’t even want or can not use and this country’s workers will not have skills that will be useful in business. Knowing how to write computer code will be an advantage for all kinds of careers in the future.

What great information! I loved the link and sent it on to parents I know, and other people involved with education. Maybe we should all learn to write some computer code.
Thank you for your interest, and like it or not, it is a realistic look at the future.
