    The Romanticism of Technology

    in Entrepreneur

    In today's edition of Tech Innovators, Deb discusses the way technology has been "romanticized" in the minds of consumers, so that they feel they MUST HAVE the latest gadgetry, even if it means going into debt. What is this motivation for having the latest, greatest gadgets? 


    Many new tech items are primarily marketed on a "social status" platform than actual value. Think before you buy and consider the cost of over purchasing for the hottest tech items. There is no way anyone will ever truly keep up with "The Jonses," because technology is in a constant state of flux.


    Quote: "The only 'constant' in technology is change!"

    What is the role of play for humans? In our rather puritanical society is play a valid method to support learning or does it change the game?

Our guests on this show represent different perspectives in the business of gaming in education. Come join us at the Table and find ways that you can integrate game strategy into your products, instructional strategies, and marketing.

    TECHNETRONICS = TECHNOLOGY IS THE NEW THEOLOGY

    in Science

    Technocracy - a few people (elite) with a lot of knowledge about science or technology control who a very large group of people who don’t have access to the same technological knowledge.


    Why has Western Judeo-Christian culture has developed such an extraordinary obsession with technology? 

    Does technology embody the tenets of religious millenarianism promising the transcendence of mortal life or immortality? 

    It is the achievement of this provocative thesis to foreground that religion and technology are not so much opposing historical projects but rather that they are deeply intertwined. 


    Let's take a look at my new book TECHNETRONICS!

    Educational System is not Teaching Kids so Why are we Handcuffing the Teachers?

    in Social Networking

    Schools are no longer a path to cultivation and a life of the mind; they are on a path of a job. Along the way, as schools became a training ground for corps of workers, they also became a means of furthering national interests. The debate about schools had become part of the debate about national power. Which brings us to the twenty-first century.


    When George W. Bush announced No Child Left Behind (NCLB), his purported intention was to encourage a set of practices and institute a set of assessments that would ensure every child got the same good start at school. Implicit in that formulation was the now familiar premise that it was up to schools to close the income gap between the rich and the poor. In its most beneficent form, it could have made a powerful difference in the lives of many children. If NCLB had ensured that all kids would learn how to read and that no child would become disenchanted enough to drop out, it might have been wonderful. But that’s not how NCLB played out.


    Within just a few years, teachers were rushing to make sure that each child got a higher score on the standardized tests than he or she had gotten the year before. School superintendents also felt compelled to see to it that their schools got higher scores every year. What had been promoted as a means of ensuring that all children received the fruits of our educational system became a relentless push toward improved test scores. With each year, more and more focus was on the scores themselves and less on the education the scores were intended to measure. At the national level, politicians threatened that if we didn’t educate everyone, once again our country might fall behind. The conversation was less about giving everyone access to reading, thoughtful engagement in civic life, or the pleasures of ideas, and much more about seeing to it that everyone could earn a decent wage.
