The Direction of Technology This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

Samantha Z., Pewaukee, WI By sammayzee, Pewaukee, WI

The year is 1973, and the eyes of the general public have just been introduced to the computer.

Children walk to school. Printing plants are flourishing. Research is done in the books at the library. Families go to the store together to buy what they need. The only ways to interact are in person or over the phone, if you have their number memorized. Good posture? A requirement. Fair eyesight? Common. Writing on paper? Putting a pen to anything else will get you in trouble.

The year is 2013, and the human eye is glued to computer, smartphone, and tablet screens.

Schooling is beginning to expand into online courses. Printing plants are still around, but not used as much.
