Look mum…I’ve got a shiny new glass ‘slate’

April 17, 2010

Slate |slāt| – a flat piece of slate used for writing on, typically framed in wood, formerly used in schools.

Innovation and Creativity

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 – touchlook 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!
