Abstract

I have special appreciations for my education, the ability to read, comprehend, and communicate. These appreciations have led my curiosity to issues of education and how we sometimes take important necessities for granted. Advances in technologies are changing social interactions, perceptions, and the ways in which we communicate. I have become intrigued at how these changes affect the ways in which we are taught today, verses how we were taught in the past and I am especially concerned of how the future will be influenced by what we are learning. When I speak of how we are taught and what we are learning, not only am I referring to educational institutions, but also of what we absorb from daily social exchanges. As we process information, it is stored into our memories. This is how we learn and will take place regardless of the location. Remembrance is an important element in comparing the past to the present and plays an important role in this body of work.
