    How do we tell the story of education?  Would it be beneficial to frame it into a snapshot of what the future could look like?  How would this effect people's perception of change in education, such as the addition of EdTech?

  • Technology Is Short, But Story Is Long
    April 14, 2015

    I have two questions for you:

    What comes to mind when I say "Shakespeare?"

    What comes to mind when I mention the "water wheel?"

    Both were born in the 16th century. Both advanced Elizabethan culture in profound ways. One wrote "Romeo & Juliet."

    That's the difference between platform and art.

    Technology and story.

    Technology can bring you stuff (like water and Facebook posts). Story can change your idea of the stuff you want brought to you.


    I agree but:


    Will there come an age where a technology will become so integrated into the fabric of our collective story that it DOES not fade away... but rather like cultural stories or some religions, learns how to adapt to the changing framework of its own self?


    The authors overall point is indisputable, story is at the heart of literally everything today, but I would counter that his argument about the fading of past technologies as the reason why we should focus on story is, well, itself archaic.  


    The integration of story and technology is creating an online culture where one is indistinguishable from the other.  Not so with Beta Tapes of old.  That is HARD ware not SOFT ware.  The story was separate from the hardware that delivered it. 100%.  Not so with Facebook etc. I do not suppose to predict that FB will not be usurped by another platform as Friendster did. 


    I am simply asking another question.  How is the presence of technology change the manner in which we view how we tell our story?  When will how we tell our stories become so dependent on technology that the latter itself become a part of the story.  Or has it already?
