Today our class centered around building our Furl Accounts as we browsed through articles relating to education and technology. Although I began class not having even heard of Furl, I can honestly say that my initial anxiety about it has dissipated as everything appeared simple after originally setting up our account. One of the articles in particular that I added to my Furl account caught my attention. http://www.newhorizons.org/strategies/technology/allen.htm
This article discusses how nanotechnology, which many of us have probably at least heard about in the news the last few years, is and will continue affecting our K-12 educational system. This very informative article spurred my memory, as I found myself remembering the first time I had heard of nanotechnology. During my freshman year of college up in Albany, the College of Nanoscience & Technology was built right down the street from my St. Rose dorm. It was right around that time that nanotechnology was thrust into the news and into the public's awareness. After reading this article, it was very interesting to see just how far it has come along.
