In the early 2000s, one scientist commented that making a computer
algorithm understand and interpret human voice is impossible in the next
100 years. But 20 years later, this technology lives in our smartphones
and homes via voice assistants like Google Home, Alexa, and Siri.
Innovations today have one thing in common– cutting edge technology. Hence, technology education is the study of technology, in which students "learn about the processes and knowledge related to technology".
According to Wikipedia, as a field of study, it covers the human's ability to shape and change the physical world to meet needs, by manipulating materials and tools with techniques. It addresses the disconnect between wide usage and the lack of knowledge about technical components of technologies used and how to fix them.
In addition, coding is the language that technology understands and hence forms an integral part of technology education. Apple’s revered founder, the late Steve Jobs said that everyone should learn how to code or program because it teaches you how to think.
Technology education is often posited as a very adult phenomenon but, in reality, it permeates every phase of our lives, especially duing childhood. TechEd from a young age develops and hones skills, not least because it places a problem before children and encourages them to find a solution.
An innovator whose most successful in their solutioning is often the one that knows what rules exists and how they can masterfully bend them. Instead of these frameworks functioning as watertight boxes, they’re guidelines through which an innovative solution is realised.
Entrepreneurship involves thinking in a way that is geared towards problem-solving and creating solutions for others rather than yourself.
The skills a tinkerer develops over time will translate into creative thinking and broader skillsets that apply outside of the technology sphere.
A quick look at today’s dynamics shows how industries and use cases are intersectional. Artificial intelligence, robotics and machine learning aren’t restricted to technology realm– they play pivotal roles in everyday lives. As a result, TechEd develops thinking and approaches that work towards using technology in daily lives as well.
Coding, in particular, is a process of trial and error, failures and successes. That is also what the process of innovation looks like. The resilience and go-getter attitude that is developed through hours of coding applies well in the context of innovations and entrepreneurship.
Teaching AI, for instance, from scratch allows younger generations to make use of the technology they have at hand to drive societal impact. In just a few short years, AI will cease to be novel and become a distinct, irreplaceable part of children’s lives.
This quote, attributed to Albert Einstein, encapsulates the spirit behind learning technology to spark and power creativity. Coding fire up creativity and help bring to life galvanising solutions.
