The college tech guy called yesterday and said, "Your new machine is here." I'm switching from PC to a MacBook. Interesting how machines shape modern life so thoroughly. It seems my entire family spends most waking hours with machines. The technology trend is pervasive in schools as well. Is this healthy? It sure doesn't feel like.
Music class can provide some relief from machines--from digital technology. Singing games, for example, give opportunities for movement, song, and human interaction. Joyful physical, emotional, and social activity in an increasingly mechanized world!
