After reading Karl Fisch's blog, I feel that he was dead on about all the statements he made. Every teacher today should be required to be computer literate. Computers and the Internet are here to stay, as much as the older generation does not want to admit it. Computers will be a part of everyday life for everyone for years to come, especially students and teachers. I believe that students will get their homework assignments, study guides for tests, grades, and etc. in the future from a blog. The internet was just in it's infancy ten years ago, and I am not sure that it has hit its full potential yet or that it ever will.
I realize that we have older teachers in school systems that believe that if they taught for so many years without a computer then they can continue to do so. I feel like that is a childish thought process, and in the end it hurts the children. If you cannot or do not teach children to be computer literate nowadays, then as an educator, you are only setting them up in failure for the future. The future will have computers, but we must be able to use the computers to have a future.
