JeanR's curator insight, November 17, 2014 4:33 PM

Technology is very important to almost everything I do. My college applications are done via technology, my job is done via technology, and most of my entertainment is through technology. If I was to have a groundbreaking issue with my computer I would be unable to do my job, unable to work on my college applications, and have a major source of entertainment cut off. It would be very stressful to have technology problems especially if it was during a dire time such as having a project due or my manager needs something done, and it could certainly cost more than 760$ which is a huge amount of money out of my pocket. Getting ready for college would mean having to prepare several stops and precautions for technology failures and problems.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 5:55 PM

Covering the pros and cons of gaming, at least in the minds of some educators. I've covered the pros in depth here, so I'll review the concerns here. Some feel like violence in games can be a poor influence on impressionable children. Opponents claim that kids play games at home so why should they play them at school? Difficulty monitoring online activity; funding and resource allocation are also major reasons some are apprehensive over video games in school. Do I personally agree with them? No. But I was also raised in an environment that nurtured my love for gaming. Some of these questions should merit constructive conversations at the next faculty/staff meeting.
