Microsoft reveals it’s cards…
It seems that it will be an interesting year regarding the release and development of interactive surface technologies. Now it seems there is a mixture of large players in the market all of which could concievably affect the look of our classrooms in the not too distant future.
As you may have read I have been tracking these products for more than a year now – four major stories seem to be most dominant.
- Jeff Han’s demonstration of multi-touch technology at TED Talks
- Philips Entertaible
- Rumours of new SMARTBoard technologies that incorporates multitouch – ie more than just the rear projector model.
I suppose the question is no longer about whether or not we will see this type of technology in education but, what form will it take and who will be able to back it?
