The importance of informational technology truly hit home about three weeks ago when one of my freshman students exclaimed “so exactly, who are the Beatles anyway?” It had never really occurred to me that as I have been getting older, my students have been getting younger, a lot younger! The average age of my student freshman class is around 17-18 years old, students who have been fostered in a society dominated by the internet, computers, I-Pods and Microsoft. Most cannot remember a world without My-Space and Facebook, and none can remember a time without PowerPoint or Excel.
