They said internet is the game, we ululated.
E-learning became a thing,
Only to be hit with abstract concepts.
Electricity on a mission to leave us in dilemma.
Wondering if I should empower Technology.
The future is in the computer, they say.
The future is in technology, they say.
What kind of future?
What kind of life?
When we have screens but no family.
We have online classes but
No connections with friends.
Online shopping has become a success.
Online tickets progressing.
E-learning providing heavy crosses to carry.
Is this the student-centered approach?
Student-centered without students.
Technology knocks us out.
Big blue button or big black screens,
We struggle alone.
Teachers teach only names on screens.
Where is the connection?
Where is you and me?
Sitting as a group thinking,
Why advocate for empowerment?
