I’m so jealous of kids today and in the future. Some of them get to use these things called “Smart boards”, which are really taking off in educational use according to Wired. The idea that you could put notes up on the board, and then manipulate and transform those notes instantly, or go from a particular bullet point to a better, more detailed example of that point, is incredibly compelling. I think it would make learning much more dynamic and fluid.
The thing that really bugs me is that I predicted this invention about nine years ago, but I never invested in SMART Technologies. D’oh!
