Digitial Update

            To teach, to write, to do anything nowadays requires people to have at least some familiarity with technology. The more you have, generally the better you’re able to adapt to the changes that keep coming. It’s no longer optional. We must use technologies in our personal and professional lives.
            But it’s a hassle. There’s so much constantly changing that trying to keep ahead of the curve is a full-time job. I used to try and do it, but I learned long ago that I just couldn’t anymore. The best I can do is selectively focus on things I can adapt to my life. Even then I feel like I’m severely behind.
            But I have also learned that if I try to stop updating the tech I use, updating the tools I use, I might as well go back to the stone age.

            So I adapt. Now on my list, Visual Basic and introductory XML. Why? Because I can use it.
