This will be my final ds106 assignment for this class
I decided to do the writing assignment session, New Emerging Technology Writing Assignment
This assignment directions is write about a recent emerging technology and how it has effected our society. This assignment I felt was perfect for this section as we are talking about the future of education.
Well the NUMBER ONE technology anyone would have to agree is the emerging of smartphones. Smartphones have been our only a few years yet the idea of it has spread so fast that most people in advanced countries own them or at least have used them and know what it does. Smartphones can do anything a computer can do but it can be done anywhere as long as the person is holding the phone. This results in information flying around here and there within seconds. For instance i think that twitter has gained alot from smartphones especially in Korea. If you go to Naver the number one search engine in Korea and search any famous star on it a stars profile will pop up and their recent twit and peoples twit about this person. People can be riding the bus and in the past people would just stare into space or pretty girls/guys on the bus but now they are taking in information and replying their thought instantly.
Whether we like it or not cyberspace and society is growing rapidly even though there is only one class in the university. Out in the real world it is what is being invented at this very moment.
As my mind wanders as how the internet will be effected by this as time goes on is beyond my imaginations. SmartPhones are becoming our cameras our textbooks our news our toy and our life. One possilbe thought that comes into mind is that like in Cambell’s video our whole process of learning will change. The possibilities are endless for these phones and technology and to be honest I am both scared and excited to what it will become/brings in the future.
