The Changing Spaces of Reading and Writing

Times Square revisited

Times Square revisited, originally uploaded by michael_davies.

My name is Drew Murphy and I chose this photo of Times Square because it speaks to me about our deep immersion in text and technology. There’s an incredible power and excitement about the photo and also a sense of danger and excess. The text and the technology are literally engulfing the pedestrians who calmly wait to navigate the chaos. The scene alludes to Postman’s ideas that new technologies alter the things we thing about, the symbols we use and the arenas in which thought develops.

I’m a high school technology teacher in Sechelt, British Columbia. I apply technology in the teaching of our planning and graduation program. I’m very involved with technology , pedagogy and the design of educational software. I’m looking forward to taking my third course in the MET program and working with everyone.
