EDAD 536 - Leading with Instructional Technology
Summer 2013

"In 2004 when I wrote "The World is Flat", Facebook didn't exist to most people, Twitter was a sound, the cloud was in the sky, 4G was a parking place, Linked In was a prison, applications were what you sent to college, and for most people, and Skype was a typo. This, all in a seven year span. We're not just connected, we're hyper connected."
- Thomas Friedman Sept 2011 "Meet the Press"
