Some points I found especially interesting from the article was the fact that the author said with all of the text on the internet, cell phones, etc. it is possible that we are reading more than was read in the 1970's-1980's when television was incredibly popular. This to me was shocking but it does seem true. Back then in order to read you had to physically open a book or newspaper and practice reading. Now it is almost impossible to escape reading. The only difference is that reading is done in small chunks. The other thing I found interesting in this article was the reoccurring theme that everyone feared the new technology but it always created much needed improvements. For example, Nietzsche was having trouble writing, then he got a type writer and he felt that he could write far more easily. This did, though, change the way he wrote. This is similar to what we're seeing today. The way we learn, write, etc. is going to be different, but this may just be the change we need.
I think this article showed that the time has changed and new technology is inevitably here. Yet, we need to recognize that this may not be a bad thing, there are many positives that could come out of it. As educators though we need to realize this and adapt our lessons because students literally learn in new ways now.
