I was amazed by the story of a young entrepreneur that has already become a successful individual at a very young age. His name is Michael Furdyk, a young millionaire that has not just become rich through the usage of technology, but has also helped many lives in the process. It was interesting how he first became rich by doing what very few people dared to do, then decided to continue with technology to create web pages to help out people all around the world. Him being so young and already getting the chance to work with people such as Bill Gates motivated me to want to do innovative things in this country, as suggested by our tutor, Edgar K. Audelo. Another thing discussed is how it can be implemented in our educational system to promote a technologically involved culture. If technology is something Mexico lacks in its infrastructure, we should be the ones to apply its use to teach others and make major advances like the young visionary we talked about today.

I was interested in Hector Ruiz's plan named 50x15 after having watched a conference in which he explained its purpose. It was intriguing since I agree with point of view in the usage of technology in the right way so that we can get the best out of it. He explained how he wants as most people as possible to have internet access because by doing so, the world will be connected. I believe it is a positive thing because that way we will enrich ourselves with knowledge and also be connected to the rest of the world, therefore making it a mutual experience in innovation. The phrase that really caught my attention in his speech was when he said that a civilization has to be better than the past one in order to make progress, something I strongly agree with.

Todays class consisted in reading about how technology has become a part of our society and how it has influenced the educational system. It was up to us to decide if it is a good thing or bad thing, for which I think it is a good thing. I take into consideration how certain people or institutes are not prepared for the application of certain technologies in education, but I think that if it is used correctly, we can take a lot from it. Technology is innovating the way society is set so I think we should adapt to it and use it in a correct manner so we can take the best out of it instead of falling behind even more!

In my perspective Educational Technology is defined as the process of using technology to make learning easier for pupils. It is very essential to create simple procedures so that students can get the best out of it and not just follow precise steps. Using a constructive approach to educational technology will benefit the student because it will prepare him or her for usage of it in the "real world". In my opinion, if we learn to use it correctly, we will learn how to use new technologies and be up to date of what is going on around us!
