Slate |slāt| – a flat piece of slate used for writing on, typically framed in wood, formerly used in schools.
The future of education, learning and communication just took on a whole new look.
It looks a lot like a shiny glass blackboard and it’s called the iPad. It’s not about typing or a mouse; it’s everything to do with interactivity – touch, look and feel.
It’s not just about text, pics or animation, it’s more about bringing a book or a newspaper to life with digial video. It’s not about a local disk a USB drive or even a desktop processor, it’s more about the ‘cloud’. It’s not just about pulling information; it’s about pushing IT. It’s not about repurposing old software, it’s more about rewriting everything from scratch.
Move over Geeks. Digital connectedness just hit the masses. We’ve now got a new tool anyone can use. From a 2 year old to a 92 year old!
At last IT will become fun.
Because – Hi Tech. Just got replaced by Hi Touch!
