Mr.Gibb. The video is amazing. Every teacher in America should see it . I too am thinking.

That video has been making the conference and professional development rounds for like three years now. Old news.

Russ, why is it some people just to have to demean a very interesting video. maybe, old news to him but new to me. maybe he should ask himself why he spends his time telling us how he somewhat better than us because he saw it 3 years ago. sad ,sad.

I'm not sure that half of the statistics in that video will even be remotely correct. It would be very naive to assume that computers are the last frontier. Also, the population will take some sort of hit with some as-of-yet not widely known disease. Populations in every living species gets set back when it starts to over populate. If you would have seen a video like this with what they thought things are going to be like now, that was made in 1970, you would be slapping your knee you would laugh so hard. Predicting the future is impossible. If 10 percent of those stats came to be true it would be truely miraculous.

I thought it was funny how grossly incorrect many of the statistics were.

The human brain loses processing capacity as it gets older: we're at our prime during the first six to eight years of our lives. 75% of the human Intelligence Quotient is considered fully developed by the time a student reaches their third grade classroom: children eat up and process everything they see in a way that short circuits brain theorists on a daily basis.

And please, let's try to fix Microsoft Word's spell check before we get into making computers that attempt to write abstract, romantic poetry...

PR FIRM, I'm happy to say that I finally agree with you on something! Humans are notoriously bad about predicting the future -- even the not-so-far-off future.

Have a great day.

I'm skeptical about most of the statistics. If computers are so wonderful, how come their weather simulations/predictions are so rotten? If you say tomorrow will be just like today, you will be correct 85%+ of the time, better than the weathermen/women with their computers! And, what an incredible indictment of the schools! Instead of teaching the skills of thinking, problem solving, communicating in more than one-syllable words, etc., the schools are teaching that "technology" is the answer to everything.
