Two days before, eBay was running an promoted post across image sharing site Imgur that shows how technology has transformed over the recent years.

 

In the GIF shown above, you can see how everything that used to be placed on a desk can now be done with a single MacBook and a smartphone.

I love how the stuff that has disappeared in this picture reflects reality. I use most of it daily, except the alarm clock, the pen and paper, and the lovely picture of my cat that invades my home everyday.

 

Too bad most of the young people, at least here in the Netherlands, learn by using an iPad...We played outside.

We where thought to write on a piece of paper, nowadays they learn how to type.

Why do math?                             The computer can do it for us.

Why learn a foreign language?    We have translators.

Why learn where Tokyo is?          We got Maps. 

 

Technology has not done us well the past 20 years.

Don't you need a printer any longer? And some printer drivers for Mac are awful.

 

for some uses, you do not... 

 

I have in mind electronic tickets (plane, rail, cinema)

 

e-ticket-validation-smartphone-barcode-s

 

 

 

this practice could be extended to other areas

Technology helped lot of people to access education all around the world

 

You can do lot more with current technology, the only problem is how to use all we have to make beautiful things, learning using an ipad isn't something bad, no more HEAVY schoolbags for our chidrens..

 

No matter where you are you can learn what you want, before you needed to go in expansive school to learn complex things

 

Now you can use google earth to watch the universe, you can access free educational content, you can have discussion with EVERY one all around the world, teacher, student, doctors, scientist etc..

 

Todays technology made education easier for us, as i said the only problem is to find how to use it correctly

 

That's the problem of our politics, they are too old to understand how to fully exploit the current technology

 

Here in my country politics want to use iPAD to teach childrens how to code -_-, because they think apps is what will solve unemployment problems

First of all, hope you're doing well, pal. Been a while since we've chatted. :)

 

Personally, as one about to go into making new technology in the near future, I love all the new tech advances and I always support them for what they are. However, that doesn't mean that said advances should be used without wisdom. :) I think too many people forget that with more capability comes more responsibility. For example, with the World Wide Web we have an incredible resource of information that no other generation of humans has known, but we also have to sift through the information and determine/decide which should be considered valid or not. That takes an incredible level of critical thinking and discernment.

 

We aren't used to technology progressing so fast - 30 years is not a long time. Five of my siblings are over that age. We've gotten so excited about what our tech is capable of that we forget how to operate it wisely in context of our daily lives. Our lives are more than computers or social media, even if some of us behave as though they are the only things that exist. ;)

 

Everyone should periodically take a step back and look objectively at the whole situation: look at how much we have to be grateful for! Look at how much we can do now! I must handle all these things even more carefully now, because so much is at stake! I need to learn how to handle all this capability with wisdom.

 

One might say I'm taking this to far, philosophically. But I believe it is of the utmost importance. 

 

(Side note: these are all my personal views, I am not speaking on behalf of the staff or the site).

I thinks that when things were written on a diary instead than on a file, and messages were sended on a piece of paper instead than on a mail we were surely safer.

But at the end, who cares! ;)
