Times Are Changing

Back when I was in high school, we barely used computers.  Other than typing up reports and a little bit for research, I don’t think I really needed a computer in any of my non-elective classes.  I graduated in 2000.  A lot has changed since then.

Our sports writer for the Tastefully Driven Lifestyle Blog runs a great blog called The Blog of Champions.  He also happens to be in high school.  As part of a social studies project he and his classmates were asked to create a blog about social injustice in America.  Let me repeat that:  as part of a social studies project he was asked to create a blog.  How freaking cool is that?  Blogging has hit high school classrooms!  Pretty soon every kid will at least know how to set up a blogger blog or a wordpress.com blog.

If you get a chance, swing over to his blog about fixing health care and leave a comment on the first post.  It’s always nice to help a student out when you get a chance.  But helping a student out with a blog comment – man, times are changing.

    Hey Adam,

    Times have definitely changed, from poster board presentations and using the computer for “Encarta”, to having online presentations and powerpoints, alot really has changed.
