In the article “Reasoning our way in…” by David Warlick, he thinks about the future based on the technology the students today have grown up around. First, the technology of every day use is different like a digital watch has more functions than are needed for what the watch is designed for; the old watch had one knob to change the time and nothing more to it. Next, the new technologies that have made life easier like the internet, the only problem is that some processes are too complicated to remember exactly how to do it. Last, how most products like video games are built around getting people to have to problem solve like in video games they don’t always come with instructions for the controls or objectives. It is easy to see that the future will be built around better, new technologies for everyone to use.
