Learning and Technology: Friends Yet Enemies

In the post-industrial society we live in today, technology seemingly overruns our lives. From working a stressful job to relaxing on the couch, technology is at the core of everything we do. This stands true for school as well; in fact it is especially prominent in the lives of students. In order for them to write essays or blogs, they need computers and internet.

Technology is very useful for students, and is one of the most important tools available to them, if not the most important. Computers provide rapid information with little to no cost or time investment, whereas using a dictionary or encyclopedia would take a good amount of time to pull out and look through. This is very helpful for students that are taking a heavy course load since they need all the time they can get to work.

This list will be geared more towards the video capabilities of last year’s (or not so last year’s) digital cameras. In addition, I won’t take into account price, only the performance of each camera.

*The order of the list is in no way indicative of whether one is better than the other, though, I believe the Arri Alexa to be the best.*
