Ode to Virtuality
I keep getting stuck in the wall
teleporting to a shack in the air and then I fall
stuck in box, wearing a cube
running into someone and feeling like a rube
Mixing up my controls and walking off cliffs
messing up the sim when I write a bad script
falling up, falling down, heck, I even fell sideways
but my students are happily working these days.
But even though I sometimes am a bit slow
this is the way I must learn to teach, I know.
The power, the strength, we’re on the cusp of change
again we move forward though many stay the same.
Invention, learning, creativity, choice – this is NetGen
whether you like it or not, they fill the classroom you’re in.
Time to evolve, to create anew
to build a newer, a virtual you.
