Week 2

What did I learn this week? Well, I learned the difference between emerging technology and an emerged one. I think that an emerging technology has the potential to help us do tasks a lot faster and better that we ever could have thought of before. Emerging technology also forces us to step up our game when it comes to using technology.   There are so many reasons why it is important to keep up with emerging technology both in and out of the workplace, but the biggest reason is knowledge.

It is useful for us to stay up to date on the latest advances in technology. One never knows what you can discover when you allow yourself to open up to the world of new and advancing technology. Charles Darwin sums it nicely and gives all us the best reason for keeping up with emerging technology. “It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.”- Charles Darwin

“Only the educated are free.” – Epictetus

  1. Hi Felicia, you correct in attributing knowledge as the driving force behind innovation and emerging technology.

      Hello Vivian;

      That is so true. I feel that there is too much information out there and the last thing I want to do is fall behind. So now I’m trying to learn of one new innovation (well, new to me) a week. I think it keeps me sharp and competitive in this tech environment.
