"Our Googley Advice to Students: Major in Learning" by Peter Drucker talks about how students need to challenge themselves more and not take the classes they think they can get an easy A in. If students do that then their success in college will grow and they will be more likely for jobs in the future. The article also says that learning doesn't end after you graduate and you should continue to try to learn throughout your whole life.

“Keyboard vs. Pen?” by C. Odonnel asks the question about which is better to use, keyboard or pen? The article says that using pen and paper is faster than keyboard and computer. I do believe that writing with a pen and paper is a faster way of writing but it is not more efficient than a keyboard and computer. For example if somebody makes a mistake with pen a paper, they either have to start over or leave a bad scribble mark. However, if you make a mistake with a computer, it either fixes it right away or it shows you that it is wrong and you can easily fix it. Also, kids won’t have the excuse of my dog ate my homework or showing up to class with a crumpled paper because they can print the paper off in class and hand it to the teacher with no problem.

"2020 Vision" by Karl Fisch is another example he shows about hoe technology is affecting the future. In this video he says that technology is going to change us, education, and the world. I can compare this to most of his other videos like "Did You Know 4.0" because they bothe talk about how technology is affecting our future in a big way. This matters to me and the world because if technology is changing the world, then we need to think about things in a new way and to try to evolve the human race even more. We can do that by starting to use and understand technology when we are young so that we can build upon that when we are older.
