Inquire out loud

Archive for the ‘Blogs’ Category

I LOVE the paper blogging idea. Although I was talking to a mum/engineer yesterday and we were both agreeing on fact that we don’t like seeing our kids on the computer – no matter what, we were both stating, that is our future. She thinks that in the future we won’t even go to the doctor – we will stay at home, with our web cam and doctor will tell us what to do, then we will contact a pharmacy on line and the post will do the delivery. Basically she was confirming what we keep saying – tech is all around us and is constantly updating. What we can do is to give our children basic knowledge and the skills they will use in the future whatever software will be! Whether we agree or disagree with it! What do you think?
