Technology doesn't create loneliness, it reveals it. Once revealed, technology can help alleviate isolation and spur connection.
My perspective on the complex technology-human connection is quite simple. Technology is simply a tool and not a free agent with free will. It is strictly the individual's choice to define and find balance at each given moment as to remind one's self that technology is a tool and couldn't be responsible for whatever negative outcome one may experience. Technology doesn't create lonliness Technology users do:)

Is History an important subject in school? Or should we be focusing on the future?
The Democratic Values that we enjoy today are rooted in a history of man made laws that evolved due to precedent cases and ongoing amendments in quest for civilty and better quality of life for all. To strike History out of the school curriculum really is to attempt to nullify the importance or cause if you will, of theories or concepts that are the bases and pillars for our modern blue-print.

Do introverts make better leaders?
I watched Susan Cain's Video as well. I found it quite enlightning and motivating. As an educator it solidified my belief that each child is special and unique with their own learning style. Susan Cain's video was an invitation to celebrate diversity and encourage it at various levels in our daily lives. To ask the question whether introverts make better leaders is really to generalize and risk stereotyping. I believe it depends on the disposition, inclination and expertise of that particular person in a given profession. Leaders, introverts or extroverts must be visionaries always mindful of the big picture or destination and the means to accomplishing the end.
