The Fax on Digital Change


As humans, we find ourselves mired in old-school methods for teaching and learning. After all, most of what we know about school is based on the roles we played as students for 13-17 years and that is hard to overcome.

We approach the changing digital landscape the same way. Many of us are still trying to figure out how to set the clock on our VCR's, even though it's getting more difficult by the day to find something on video tape to play. DVD instead, you say? Not too much longer.

Ask a kid today what a fax is and you're likely to get a very puzzled expression.
