I’m a big fan of workshops. They are a great way to get to know a new and/or unfamiliar tech, as well as a way to get a perspective on how technology works. I love how these workshops allow me to build that appreciation and to learn new things that I might not have known about in school without it taking away from my other classes.
In the past, I’ve worked in several workshops, and I can say that my favorite workshop is by far the Arduino workshop, which is an introductory one that is very similar to a class I took in college. I’ve also worked on the robotics control systems design group and the control systems design software group. These are two workshops I’ve always loved, but I didn’t get to do a lot of them because I’m a teacher first and foremost.
Yes, I am indeed a teacher first. Ive also been in the software group for a while, but I have not been there long enough to be allowed to speak for myself. I have been teaching for over a decade, and I love teaching. However, I am not going to lie and say that I am the only teacher in the world who loves teaching. I love teaching because teaching is a challenge. Teaching is difficult and full of unexpected challenges.
I find that a challenge because there are so many different types of students (i.e. students who want to be taught, students who want to learn, and students who simply want to be entertained). It is also so wonderful to see what students have been working towards and what they have accomplished, and also to see students take on new challenges and learn new skills.
I always love to go to different technology workshops. Technology is the one thing I think about every day, at least every day. I love hearing the latest about new technologies, and I love seeing what students have been working to achieve. It’s a wonderful feeling, and I feel like an old woman as I always feel like I should be able to show off my latest gadget.
I feel the same way with technology. I can’t help but think about it every day. My computer, my cell phone, my TV, my iPod, my phone, my car, my home, my clothes, my food–everything I own is connected to technology. If I’m not careful, things will be lost. I’m not sure where that leads to, but I know it will affect me.
Well, maybe it’s just me. But I think a lot of us are beginning to think we’re not as smart as we think we are. For instance, when I was in college I was one of those students who kept a diary and kept it constantly updated. So I think that I should be able to show off my latest gadget and be proud of it. What I mean by this is that I should be able to show off my latest technological progress and be proud of it.
I think that’s what we’re forgetting. We should be proud of our technological progress and progress in general. We should be proud that we are on the path towards becoming smarter. However, I think that we should be very careful about showing off the latest tech and gadgets that only benefit us, not the people we need to be saving.
To be sure, some people believe that the advancement of technology in the past century has been a net benefit for society. For example, you may have seen a recent documentary on the subject of “Smart Cities” that shows a group of cities in Europe and the United States that have made massive strides in technology and are now able to save lives by providing emergency medical services.
Unfortunately, this does not take into consideration the fact that we have made major strides in the technology industry as well. We have automated all our cars, we have brought down our own electricity and water, and we have vastly increased our ability to keep up with the latest and greatest in the use of new technologies. None of this would have been possible without the help of others, so it’s foolish to think that we can just wait out the rest of the world and be just as good.
