Change Happens

15 May

It wasn’t that long ago that we lived as depicted below. Long enough ago, however, that we can look back and parody the lifestyle.
What else has changed so drastically in such a short amount of time?

      Yeah Candace, As I watched that Blockbuster video and the Onion Satires and reference to it, sure tells our age… such spark differences experiences from those who are on their 30 something today…but you and I were those customers who hoped we were the ones being the # 1 renting those movies for our nearly 20 year old children .As Drew very well said “it wasn’t long ago” Time flies…. Drew to answer your question what has changed? Too much to the point the way we teach is obsolete because the children are thinking differently. Even in the area of disciplining things have changed. Excellent parody although many of us do not know about The Onion… seems to be something outside the New England area….

    I remember when my parents purchased one of the first color TV’s in Spain. We felt so lucky. It was a Zenith… I also remember when Sears first opened in Barcelona and it was the most amazing store with the colored china and metal barware… from America! I think perhaps the best and most amazing change that has happened in recent times is in the area of communication, the fact that we can Skype all over the world alone is amazing. I was talking to someone last week, she was going away to her summer home. She said we can still communicate: lets e-mail each other, I suggested Skype she added better yet lets use FaceTime… she is 85 yrs old!!! I loved it!! However amazing all the progress has been, our students have grown up with colored big screen TV’s, video games, iPods and e-books. Good reflective piece.
