As my class knows, I have a passion for technology, any pilot programmes, new gadgets or just ideas usually are implemented in my classroom. Last week, an interesting article appeared on my desktop, the notion of virtual reality for a father to witness his third child's birth.
I couldn't help but make connections to the ISKL Community. Living as expatriates in our community offers amazing opportunities in life, but often, families can be separated by distance.
Many of my students have parents who often travel for business; my husband is usually away from Kuala Lumpur for 2 - 3 weeks of the month. Missing important events, band concerts, parent conferences and plays, however, we know that in the long run we have a common goal and even though at times absences can be difficult it tends to make the homecomings that much sweeter.
Not only does virtual technology offer opportunities to lessen the distance, it also allows people to experience new adventures. Using technology, Samsung opened a Dive Store in the middle of Australia, where there is no access to the sea. What people experienced with their technology is amazing.
Enjoy the journey.
