CONVERSING WITH TECHNOLOGY
Technology promises,     

but never quite delivers
Most technologies were

not built for us - they
devolved to our level.
We compensate for the

limitations — eg. 
emoticons
Technology places a

premium on facts,  not
opinions or emotions.
Postman (1998):  “the
computer person values
information,  not
knowledge,  certainly not
wisdom. ”
Do we get stuck in an

echo chamber that
makes us feel good?
Small devices are
redefining our social
World.  Do we Want them
to?
We need to have these

discussions with our
students.
THROUGH

TECH MEDIATES OUR COMMUNICATION
Distance and time seem

to be irrelevant now.
We have potentially

huge audiences (or
small,  important ones)
So why are teens

lonelier?
Technology mediates, 
influences and
occasionally defines our
conversations and
relationships by the
tools we create.
These are issues that We
can deal with I<— 12
students in appropriate
ways.
