Below is a story (youtube) I made up in ASL which is similar to the 3 little pigs. However, since the invasion of technology into our daily lives, not just children but everyone has been affected by the explosion of social networking and instant gratification of timely communication. Text messages and Facebook devour our minds and time but we all still love it. It truly is Sophie’s choice for the previous, current and next generations.
You can blame video games, you can blame parents; either way, children (and adults) have been desensitized to violence, life, liberty and freedom. Thus, this is how I imagine the 3 little pigs would be told by today’s standards.
No matter the ramifications of Facebook, Twitter and Youtube - ramifications which are still unknown, we will continue to enjoy these technologies always awaiting the next new tech-fad.
