technology and education

In the palm of your hand, there is technology that can help you learn almost anything. I know it is a popular saying that “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” At the same time, in order to succeed, you must know things, educate yourself and continually update your knowledge base. Once upon a time people thought of higher education or continuing education as something you had to leave your home to do. Then technology put mini computers aka smart phones in the hand and pocket of almost every person in America. What this means is that instead of you going to the source of education, you can bring the education to you.  This can be done via ebooks, independent online courses, open courseware and online courses at colleges and universities.
