About the Author

Mickey Slimp's career has married technology and education to create a better world for students. As the founding director of the Virtual College of Texas, an innovative media producer in biotech, a former reporter, and a community college leader, his insight provides new digital markers for the pathways to student learning. After thirty years in various industries and technology-related positions, Roy Bartels retired from Western Texas College as Chief Technology and Information Security Officer. His experience, education, and service on regional, state, and national boards, plus his retirement career in fiction writing, gives him a unique perspective on the Internet of Things


Slimp and Bartels have chronicled the changes educators and administrators don't always see or realize on our campuses and explain the Internet of Things and other trends for the digitally challenged and experts alike. I value the forecasts chapter as both a warning and an opportunity. Read this book to catch up and get ahead of our fastest moving future-soon. -- Carol S. Spalding, President, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College
Dr. Slimp does an outstanding job of taking the reader through the background of "all things digitally connected" and propelling you into its potential future and impact on learning. This nostalgic yet futuristic journey is an enjoyable read that plants a compelling sense of endless possibilities! -- Marci Powell, Education Futurist and Project Director & Co-Anchor, Virtually Inspired; Chair Emerita, US Distance Learning Association
Wow - what colorful fun writers! -- Corinne Hoisington, author, Cengage Learning; professor, Central VA Community College
There's an enormous amount of " whats around the corner" of curiously investigative interest. This book begins to raise an intellectual interest that there is an enormous " New World " to be explored. -- Blas Castaneda, President, CTA Global Solutions, LLC
