The future is now (or at least this summer)!!!


I don't know about you, but I'm pretty tired of buying a laptop or any technology device only for it to be outdated in matter of.....days. But if you're in the market for something new and functional, then you're going to love what's coming around the corner!!!

The new HTC EVO 4G is Sprint's Android and it's amazing. Gone are the days when a cell phone was just, a cell phone. This one in particular, has an HDMI output, 8megapix camera, oh and not to mention that it also runs on droid technology...so it's fast...really fast.

Now before you go and chuck your plastic paper weight that you call a cell phone, Sprint has not listed what the prices are or when exactly it'll be coming out (for sure this summer). Verizon and AT&T are working on their 4G phones but it won't be coming out that fast.

Imagine what this could mean for school technology? How many schools out there have a digital camera and a digital video camera tucked away somewhere collecting dust? How long now till we are looking at those products as obsolete and antiques? Shall I start the timer now?

Technology is moving at an amazing pace, and we as educators have to move as fast to help our students get ready.

How far away are we till our students will be required to have a 4G cellphone for class work?

Hi Crazy Teacher!

I’m writing to suggest the addition of www.school-counselor.org as a resource on your website/blog. This website provides helpful insight into the field of school counseling for those who are performing their career exploration or simply interested in learning more. It seems like it would be a worthy link on your blog.

Hope this is helpful,

Seth Sanford

I have it and I absolutely love it. It can do sooo much. I love the constellation app. All I have to do is point my phone to the sky and it tells me what I am looking at. I also love how it connects me to all of my web 2.0 resources like facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. I know that I lived without it before, but now I cannot imagine ever being without it.
