Ipods and education

Many universities have started to use downloadable lectures and even lessons in Spanish, French, and other languages. It was a chain effect once it started and is now a very popular way of getting information to the students. This technology takes place of actually going to the class, and the students can download lectures from any computer with internet access. This is very convenient, but can also take away from the face-to-face communication that goes on during classes. Overall I believe that this a good idea and can make it easy to listen to lectures or language lessons anytime, not just during a lecture.

Emerging Tech #2

I recently bought the touch screen Navigator phone from Verizon Wireless. I like the phone alot because it allows me to play music, surf the internet, watch TV, check my email and also the standard features of texting and voicemail. I can also take, and send pictures and videos. It is a very convenient technology to be able to check email wherever I am. The other main feature that I really enjoy is the MP3 palyer. This is a nice new technology because I no longer have to carry my ipod and can put songs directly onto my phone. This small hand-held device is very advanced and has taken the place of many other technologies. Cell phones are becoming more and more advanced and will continue to gain more function, usefulness and convenience.
