Technology’s sixth sense

This TED talk is a a year old but the technology is still astounding.  What impact will this have on the nature of learning and why are we still so afraid of technology in classrooms? 

Don Tapscott describes Gen Y as the ‘digital echoes’ – these young people have never known anything other than ‘digital ‘. Just as we are an echo of the Big Bang.

I read a quote last night which said that TV is a new technology to those who have never watched it.

    That is just amazing! I wonder where the development is at now nearly another 12 months down the track? Imagine having that tool for students to work. The learning environment certainly expands well beyond the traditional walls!
