Education is always and everywhere about opening doors, opening minds, opening possibilities. Education is about opening your eyes and seeing for yourself the world as it really is in all its complexity, and then finding the tools and the strength to participate fully, even to change some of what you find.” - William Ayers

As absurd as this seems, one thing is for certain: teaching needs to move with the times. If educators aren’t embracing the behaviors of their students, the effectiveness of student learning will not be maximized. That’s one of the main reasons professors need to embrace technology and communication in the classroom. Restricting it to maintain traditional 18th and 19th century teaching styles will only put a limit on the quality of student learning.
