Four Stages of Introducing New Technology

Slate is running a great future-tense piece on how society reacts to new technology. Briefly, Brian Johnson qualifies this reaction into four steps:

  1. It will kill us all!
  2. It will steal my daughter!
  3. I’ll never use it!
  4. What are you going on about?

I’m usually on step 4…although I am very suspicious that my iPad is stealing my oldest daughter.

A good read. And very relevant for teachers.
