I encourage anyone to watch this. This is part two of an interview with Dr. Isaac Asimov. It is unreal how “right on” Asimov is with his opinions and optimistic views are for learning in the future, as seen at the beginning of the video. Please note this interview was filmed in 1988. Asimov states, “You ask, you can find out, you can follow it up, you can do it in your own home, at your own speed, at your own direction, on your own time. then everyone will enjoy learning…now adays what people call ‘learning’, is forced on you…”(Asimov, 1988). Asimov talks about how the internet can spark learning interests because of the power of technology. He talks about social networking long before the famous Facebook or MySpace websites were in existence. Asimov was all about learning progressively. Are you? What does this video mean to you? Learning with technology can save schools and students’ interest in learning and knowledge. This video is very powerful in the sense of he is discussing what can and should happen for the future, over twenty years ago.
