The digital game

Here we go! Week 3 is about technology. Has it evolved for better or for worse?

Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.

Thomas Edison

Cellphones. It’s part of our livelihood. Don’t believe me? See how you contribute to this by taking a quick 5 minute survey included on Wednesday’s post. For those of us who won the “life lottery” technology is taken for granted. Do we use it to help others or just benefit ourselves?

Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.

– Bill Gates

Building a friends self-confidence by liking their Instagram photo may seem like you’re contributing to this world, but I challenge us to look bigger! Outside of ourselves and use cellphones as a tool to achieve a bigger goal. Don’t hit the easy button just to avoid the rocky journey ahead. The rocky road will provide us with so many valuable lessons. Live life in the now and use your cellphone as a tool.

Technology is nothing. What’s important is that you have a faith in people, that they’re basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they’ll do wonderful things with them.

– Steve Jobs

Start small. Resist the urge to satisfy those quick “digital highs.” Start to view cellphones as a tool, not so much a necessity. If this is something you struggle with, this weeks topic is for you. Keep an eye out! and I’ll talk with you soon.

 

The human spirit must prevail over technology. – Albert Einstein
