I have just found this web site. I love what you say about giving yourself permission to pursue what you enjoy. And about speaking to the boomers...because we uniquely fall in the computer knowledge and skills void. We were born being told to get pencil and paper to write notes and numbers down. My 22 yard son has purchased one textbook in college, and never taken notes. His phone is his multitasking tool. In classes he doesn’t take note, he listens and pays attention and asks question and is a very active learner, he uses his iPhone to take photos of the boards where teachers write the important stuff as wel as the assignment. He photos every board even SS they slide. He goes to the library which has copies of every text usedin all courses. And he either takes pics or makes copies . He has finish a BA in Mathmatics,, w minors in physics and studio art.all in 3 years. He is now a grad student doing sonar research developing algorithms for the. Navy and wants to use his knowledge to create sound boxes and audio based large scale art installations demonstrating physics of sound. This kid is dyslexic and dysgraphia. Means reading is arduous and takes 3X longer than others and he has great trouble physically writing. Since 5 th grade his learning tool has been his phone and not a pencil and paper. However he uses those in his artistic expressions. Our other son is a master level accountant with very complex job that tracks percentages of tv royalties internationally. He is also dyslexic and dysgraphia. Not until after he was success did I get the courage to ask him how his disabilities allowed him to follow his own path. He said mom I never touch a pencil. Everything is on charts and I cut and paste it. No dyslexic. Miscopy, no illegible numbers. It is a new world even educational. We fought for the first to get a keyboard in 3rd grade. We balked at the cost of a new iPhone for an 8rh grader when we had flip phones.
