Ask yourself how do we teach the use of books and compare your thoughts and ideas with how we teach the use of technology, mainly computers.

Neil Postman believes that these new technologies are taking away our balance of orality and the use of the classic paper and pencil. Learning with groups, a sense of social responsibility and cooperation are focuses of orailty. The printed world revolves around personal learning, personal autonomy and competition.

The Romantic Circles High School Project first started way back in the new millennium. It is an online website used for British literature and poems in the Romantic era. The website was created by three college professors across the United States. It is a place for students to research the Romantic Era and to get help from other students and teachers around the world.

Technology is a part of learning whether you want it or not.
