I can honestly say that I have a love/hate relationship with technology. Yes, technology does have its many advantages, however, my experiences with it has lead me to believe otherwise!? I can not say that I have spent quality time with this "thing" that is suppose to be my friend because I do not always view my computer as a docile and trustworthy creature--there have been one too many times when it has let me down. I think I must have missed the class where they taught computer literacy. I am not saying, that if given a computer, my first reaction would most likely be to just burn holes in it with my eyes, but my skills are definitely lacking?! I can truthfully admit that when I was a younger, technology wasn't really something I was exposed to, unless you want to count an overhead; and even when it was, it was as if we were just fed to the dogs and left to fend for our own. I have yet to come upon a teacher who will inspire me to make good use of technology, though I do have high hopes that this course will effortlessly reverse my current feelings towards anything technological.
