TO ADOPT OR TO ADAPT? THE CHOICE IS OVER
Iholesstill remember when I was a kid, I love playing sand, building castles and digging for traps. Playing hide and sick, “tumbang preso” and balik bayan. Oh! How I miss the days of yesterday. The day when I first met my friend “Chang”. Let me introduce him. He is a friend of mine, he is smart, and he is easy to be with and is always there when you need him. He is always open on everything, but sometimes, some people did not respect him, they abuse him for what he has. By the way, his full name is Juan A. Change. And I would like you to read his story.
Starting when he was a kid, he is being used by many. He is well-known for his contributions in science, technology and education. He help teachers to be more innovative, creative and critical thinker. Chang is very popular, he changes the environment and the lives of every individuals, the way they talk, walk and flock information. Chang is very powerful, he is a man that will last forever. He will change everything and will help us to be more globally competent. But chang remind us that we should adopt and adapt him wholeheartedly because if not, chang will never exist.
Chang (technology and change) will always be evolving and advancing. It will continue to make life easier for students and teachers, make students more prepared for future jobs, be more intellectual about the world and for teachers to be more sensitive on the needs of their students. Technology and the education system will always go hand in hand, it will be up to our generation to make sure that these innovations in technology continue to evolve to fit the needs of people and to be used to make life better, especially for students and teachers.
