 A long time ago, my parents prepared for the first day of school by purchasing paper, pens, binders, staples, a calculator and a backpack. That was before PCs, Macs, netbooks, iPads and iPods, Android and ChromeOS tablets, ebooks and e-readers, digital cameras, backup drives, color printers, smartphones, graphing calculators and all the software applications and Internet services wrapped around those devices. The world is faster, more connected and more complicated than when I was a kid in school (or at least it seems that way).
