(discussing technology in education)

Technology education is one of the most important fields in today's and tomorrow's world that will help individuals stay competitive in their jobs globally. As we discuss this, future technology education needs to be taught in kindergarten all the way through the most advanced of degrees.

The way to stay competitive within one's own city, county, country and globally is through technology education starting K - 12 and with higher education. No longer will a bachelor's degree be adequate for the future as a master's degree at least will become the new norm.
Technology Education

Technology education can take many forms. Information technology, automotive, communication, construction, renewable energy, business, music and manufacturing technology will all be hot jobs for decades to come.

A few of the leading future technology education programs will include such areas a virtual reality, nanoscale chemistry, science and engineering, robotics, medical, people with disabilities, communications, psychiatry and psychology, computer to brain interaction, space and astronomy, renewable energy, biology, ocean exploration plus many other areas that would take too much space to mention.

Technology education will not stop once one graduates school, either as this will be a lifelong endeavor and commitment. The everyday consumer will be invited into future technology education just like they have been invited into the Internet, cell phones, high definition TV and broadband communications.

The leading edge science, technology and engineering of today will be the norms of tomorrow. Disruptive technology will shake our worlds temporarily until equilibrium is established and new technology builds on top of this.

Technology education will help us to be informed about robotic surgery, medical nanobots, computer brain interactions, and advanced wireless communications.

But technology education itself has to change in order to connect with kids, teens and adults.

Many children today have never known life before computers and cell phones. It is challenging for schools and teachers to keep up to date with the current teaching technology in order to educate their students.

Right now many students are plugged in to the Internet, computers and cell phones, connecting on social media such as Myspace, Facebook and Twitter and making friends via Xbox in different parts of the country or world.

The pace is fast and will only get faster. Teachers themselves need to immerse themselves into technology education just to keep up. Parents also must learn about texting, parental controls and other methods to keep tabs on what their children are up to.

The world is changing quickly and only through technology education do we stand a chance of not being left behind.
