No need to feel that you are being left behind. Get down to your library and we can explain it all. @SLS Guernseyeven runs courses for you to learn how to keep up. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 8, 2014 9:50 PM

The pace of digital technology change is such that everyone is being left behind. It is important to develop skills which allow adaptation rather than mastery. The object is not to understand one type of digital technology, but to have skills that allow us to move from one to another as they emerge and work together.

Annie M Herbert's curator insight, February 7, 2014 5:04 PM

So as this generation of students comes up through school, we will really have to adjust the way they receive information.  We cannot stay stagnant.  We'll lose every student out there.  And I wouldn't blame them.
