Do you remember when the internet was used basically for looking things up like definitions or maps? It has become much more useful in the past few years. It is now possible to do just about anything you can think of on the internet. Almost all electronic devices are now called “smart” devices. Most people would never leave their home without their smartphone or their smart wearable devices. It is not uncommon to see a group of people at an event all staring at their smartphones. Anyone can be a photographer or a videographer with today’s devices.
In a recent article on entrepreneur Jason Hope describes how schools and colleges are now using the internet and smart devices as a tool to give kids and young adults experiences they would otherwise not be able to have. He explains how wearable virtual reality goggles can allow students to walk through a rainforest or see a heart beating in someone’s chest. This brings new meaning to learning and training on specific subjects.
Jason Hope is an entrepreneur who received his degree in finance from Arizona State University and an MBA from ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business.

Technology can also be useful in schools for the staff. There may be devices that could make life a little easier for them. They at be able to take role, help a teacher or professor who has many students to identify when a student needs a little bit of extra attention and help. We are already seeing smart dry erase boards equipped with all the bells and whistles. The internet will eventually have a hand in almost everything we do and will make life easier for everyone. From the time you wake up to the time you go to bed, you will use some form of internet or smart device.
