Students Will Not Carry Heavy Books, Nor Use Pencils

You like it or not the world is changing and the systems that used to work until the 90s are not relevant anymore. With the advent of new technologies and digital advancements, many of the sectors are evaluating their models and systems and they are facing a difficult decision to CHANGE.
Change is very close to the heart of the youth, and to some extent not very dear to the grown ups who are used to certain systems and procedures that have become a daily routine and way of conduct.

Some of the sectors that will be affected with the advancement of the technologies is the educational sector.

Today's students are using traditional books, tomorrow's students will be using digital books.
Today's students are using traditional pens/pencils, tomorrow's students will be using digital pens/pencils.
Today's students are carrying heavyweight bags with books and copybooks, tomorrow's students will be carrying one lightweight digital notebook where hundreds of books and copybooks will be installed.

Five years ago, I was participating in a conference, where the educational sector was being discussed. One pastor shared that the students will not be using ordinary pencils and pens, but that they will become digital. He did not get much support from the participants at that time. He was considered ahead of his time.

“When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
