The Growth of the Web
I recently read in a book that the country with the most internet users is China. Not surprised, I decided to read on, the article goes on to say that America is 2nd at 239,893,600. According to Internet World Stats, it states the following regarding to china: "For much of the population, living standards have improved dramatically and the room for personal choice has expanded, yet political controls remain tight. Many elements that today are of comun use in modern life including paper, gunpowder, fireworks, credit banking, paper money and pasta originated many years ago in China. China is the most populous country in the world and has one of the fastest growing economies in the world today." What does that mean to use as technology educators in the year 2012. Where do we focus and how do we all bring about the change needed to all of our students to be able to compete in an increasingly competetive global and asynchronous world?
