Out of this World

It was forty years ago this week that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin climbed out of the lunar landing to stand on the moon. It made me reflect on how they were sent there with the best that technology had to offer at that time. This race to the moon "hurried up" the development of appropriate technologies to support this venture. These developments allow us to move forward at the rapid pace of technological change today. This week, two Canadians, Robert Thirst and Julie Payette met on board the international space station which is the first time two Canadians will be there together; another historical moment. Technological advances has created incredible innovation that will enable those in educational technology to build capacity in many learning environments. (Januszweski and Molenda, 2008)
