Growing up I never could have imagined the important role that technology would play in my day to day life. I grew up with tv, we also had a computer. A very small DOS computer. After powering up, we needed to enter code to get into any applications. Now, all we need to do is turn the computer on and then we are able to browse through whatever we need.
At 10 years old, I never imagined that I would have a small laptop computer in my home, that I used daily for work. With my kids being 5 and 8 right now, I have trouble even imagining how technology changes will impact the jobs that they end up with as they get older.
Technology is rapidly changing, and we need to make sure that our kids can keep up with these changes.
