Here are a couple of technology related items from the (college class of) 2017 Beloit Mindset list to get you thinking about what may (or may not be) technology for our students:
- They could always get rid of their outdated toys on eBay.
- PayPal has replaced a pen pal as a best friend on line.
- A tablet is no longer something you take in the morning.
- Rites of passage have more to do with having their own cell phone and Skype accounts than with getting a driver’s license and car.
- Courts have always been ordering computer network wiretaps.
- With GPS, they have never needed directions to get someplace, just an address.
- Java has never been just a cup of coffee.
- They have never really needed to go to their friend’s house so they could study together.
