          Johnson, Luke. "Obama Urges Governors To Boost Education       Funding." The Huffington Post. TheHuffingtonPost.com, 27 Feb. 2012. Web. 26 Mar. 2014.

     In Febuary of 2012 President Barack Obama urged the nation's governors to invest more state resources in education. Obama said a highly skilled workforce is crucial for the U.S. to remain competitive with other countries.  As part of the annual winter meeting of the National Governors Association. The  President and first lady Michelle Obama hosted a black tie dinner with the governors where Obama made his pitch. The president sympathized with governors whose state budgets have been badly squeezed during the economic downturn.  He also stated that despite the downturn, their is no reason to trim the schools resources.

     He also said too many states are making cuts in education that he believes are just to big.  "Nothing more clearly signals what you value as a state than the decisions you make about where to invest. Budgets are about choices." saying states should take pride in funding education.  Obama granted waivers to 11 states, freeing them from the  tough requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act. He called for more teachers in the classroom.  He noted that 21 states require students to stay in high school until they graduate or turn 18 and urged the rest of the country to follow these standards.        The President also touched on higher education and stated the 40 states have cut funding for public colleges, universities and community colleges in 2012.  Obama said his administration, and Congress themselves need to do more to make higher education more affordable.

This article discusses an ever increasing fact in our society: technology is changing the way we think and experience information. As a result, educational tactics must evolve in order to remain comprehensible to this altered cognition and cultivate the skillful thinking that comes along with it.

I am sharing this article with others because it provides exact ways in which students perceive information is changing. In understanding this , administrators can better oversee ways teachers and education can shift with students, as opposed to remaining static against them.
