FC: BOOK OF APHORISMS | By: Debbie Brown and Nevi Majano-Fuentes

1: Giving teachers technology without training is like giving them nothing at all. (Gruszecki, 2010) | By the nature of what we do, we as teachers are expected to instruct students, to prepare them for a future with materials that will be obsolete by the time students are able to develop proficiency and utilize them purposefully in their post-secondary lives. (Hunter, 2010) | The issue with these modern-day technology is not how much we use it but how we abuse it. (Brown, 2010) | Book learning is no longer sufficient in any subject; the children all say now, "Let's talk Spanish or "Let the Bard be heard", reflecting their rejection of the old sterile system where education begins and end in a book. . 1969 (McLuhan & Zingrove, 1995)

2: Physiologically, man in his normal use of technology, or his variously extended body, is perpetually modified by it and in form finds ever new ways of modifying his technology." 1964 (McLuhan & Zingrove, 1995)

3: Cell phones are the new land line. No longer do you need to be attached to your home to get a telephone call. (Simmons, 2010)

4: The future laptop is even more compact and easy to carry around, the rolltop laptop, which could be the future laptop. (Aromire, 2010)

7: Xerox has completely changed the nature of conferences and has led to much higher frequency of meetings. Xerox feeds and speeds the entire environment into the dialogue process of the conference table."- 1971 (McLuhan & Zingrove, 1995)

8: The media themselves are avant-garde of our society. Avant-garde no longer exists in painting and music and poetry, it's media themselves."--1973 (McLuhan & Zingrove, 1995)

9: "A primary method for studying the effects of anything is simply to imagine ourselves as suddenly deprived of them. If students were to interview physically deprived people about the effects on them of living in a world which has no place for a paraplegic, or a blind man, they would quickly apprehend the menace of our man-made service environment. 1974 (McLuhan & Zingrove, 1995)

11: The electric typewriter is a contradiction in terms. It is a hybrid of the fragmentary and the integral. Our world is filled with such hybrids. The internal combustion engine is such a hybrid.--1964 (McLuhan & Zingrove, 1995)

12: To tech or not to tech, that is not the question. (Streeter, 2010)

13: "Teachers no longer just an instructor, they are also parent, role-model, mentor and entertainer. (Vosberg, 2010)

15: 7.14.09 | "A picture of a group of persons of any hue whatever, is a picture of people, not of "colored people"." 1964- (McLuhan & Zingrove, 1995)

16: In some circles, the iPhone phenom is now the now the norm. (Meh, 2010)

17: "An iPhone, as many other cell phones has taken the place of the TV, radio, computer, and even certain human interaction. No longer is a teacher's physical presence in a classroom required, for the computer has eliminated the physical contact. (Majano-Fuentes, 2010)

18: "The effects of new media on our sensory lives are similar to the effects of new poetry.

19: They change not our thoughts but the structure we see the world.' 1969 (McLuhan & Zingrove, 1995)

20: At this rate, the students will be teaching the teachers and it will be the best training they've ever had. (Boyd, 2010)
