Message from the Timeline Assembler,
It is my pleasure as timeline assembler to present Revolution 9's Master timeline. I've attempted to provide a highly visual, yet simple timeline, thanks in part to professor Riel's advice. As timeline assembler, I had the good fortune of exploring each of my classmatesí timelines. Clearly, technology innovations are about the human spirit and the desire to enhance lives; profit no doubt comes into play for many innovations. What also struck me is that technology adoptions donít happen overnight and sometimes innovations donít succeed. The struggles we experience in our education systems, in some ways are a microcosm of our society as a whole. As technology change agents, we are challenged with identifying what technologies make sense to integrate into classrooms to enhance learning. Whatís exciting is that there is always a better mousetrap! Thanks to our Rev 9 team for sharing their knowledge.
