PLN 26

The article “Giving a voice to more languages on Google Translate” by Fergus Henderson matters because many people, such as myself, use Google Translate. Google recently added many languages to Google Translate and now Google has the ability to turn the text to speech. This article matters to me because I use Google Translate all the time for Spanish class and is very helpful when you don’t know a word. This article matters to my community and the world because people speak different languages and use Google Translate to help say a word. This matters to education because since it is so easy and simple to use Google Translate some students I know don’t take notes in Spanish class and upload the homework assignment into Google Translate and lean Spanish by doing that. I guess what I am trying to say is that technology is starting to replace teachers and in some places already has. For Example you can now go to college online and earn a degree. In conclusion, the real question is, when will it be when we don’t need teachers any more and just learn from technology?
