    Advice from 1992

    One of my classes requires researching “problems of practice” that teachers face. This is an informal paper, so don’t worry about my not-very-academic tone. Anyway, I just came across an article from The Clearing House‘s March 1992 edition and joyfully wrote the following in my log:

    One awesome article that I just read from 1992 – Frank Aquila’s “Is There Ever Enough Time? Twelve Time-Management Tips for Teachers” (nice alliteration, by the way) – suggested teachers “learn to use a computer” because “the computer retains personnel records, letters, and numerous forms for continual use. Even for those with a craft or cultural (rather than a technocratic) orientation, the computer can be of great assistance. The more you learn and work with a computer, the more time you can save.”

    I’m not going to say that the basic premise of this is wrong, but I’m not sure if that last sentence really holds true 20 years later… But how could anyone have foreseen facebook, youtube, and Pinterest way back in 1992?
