62 Reading, writing may become obsolete in future, experts say By Dick Pelletier When was the last time you saw fast-food restaurant employees’ actually key prices into the register? Today, clerks behind the counter press buttons with pictures of cups, burgers, or bags of fries. They never need to read or remember cost of items.



65 Then about 10,000 years ago an explosion of information emerged with the onset of the agricultural revolution and memory overload quickly followed. Human memories were no longer efficient and reliable enough to store and share the huge volume of new ideas. To overcome this problem, our forbearers developed a remarkable technology that has lasted for thousands of years – written language.


67 However, scientists believe that today’s reading and writing technologies will not serve us well in tomorrow’s high-tech world. Oxford University Professor Lady Greenfield suggests traditional learning systems; lectures, exams, and books; even reading and writing, will become obsolete in a society filled with voice- interactive machines and an Internet that could one day store all the world’s information.

68 Tomorrow’s students will be more comfortable voicing commands to mobile devices and other displays to ask questions, retrieve information, and play music and videos. Searching through books will be considered a waste of time. Forces driving this transformation include the following:

69 Growing numbers of young people strongly prefer speech over other communication systems. Billions of non-literate citizens around the world with poor reading, writing and language skills want access to information, but most become frustrated in attempts to get it. Interactive voice systems expected by 2012 will replace most keyboards and remote controls.

70 Germany’s Infineon Technologies has recently developed a series of chips powerful enough to enable mobile devices to process huge data loads required for future education and entertainment needs.


72 Advanced interactive visual display systems will empower everyone on Earth to understand information regardless of their ability to read or write. Positive futurists believe that this breakthrough could, by as early as mid-century or before, enable more nations to come together technologically and linguistically and participate in what promises to become an amazing "magical future.”

73 Transitive and Intransitive Verbs Verbs can be classified as transitive or intransitive.

74 A transitive verb requires both a subject and an object. i.e. I gave you the doll. (doll is the direct object of “gave” and “you”) Without a direct object, the meaning of a transitive verb is unclear. Incomplete: The boy held. (What did the boy hold?) Complete: The boy held the owl.

75 An intransitive verb cannot take an object. i.e. The child will nap until 2:00. (Nap is an intransitive verb, and the sentence has no object.)

76 Underline the verb in each sentence and identify if it is used transitively or intransitively. Circle the object of each transitive verb. 1.Bill is watching a movie. 2.Sally paints. 3.Bill struggled at his new school. 4.The ballerinas dance wonderfully. 5.The movie is about to begin, so we will eat our ice cream in the car. 6.I am reading Harry Potter. 7.She rolled a lucky number seven.
