Medical doctors are struggling like the rest of us to keep up with the pace of change in society, largely driven by technology. In this podcast I share 2 recent stories with a family practitioner and a heart surgeon here in Lubbock, discussing how technology driven change affects their daily behavior as well as continuing learning. I share several websightings in part 2, and wrap up with a series of interviews with Texas principals and superintendents about “keys to technology integration” on their campuses and in their districts.
