Read Rick McManus in Read Write Web: Get Ready for the World of Connected Devices
I had a couple conversations of the past week with teachers and admins talking about their 1:1 laptop programs they’re building and I have said to them that this is a narrow vision. Building a 1:1 program is building for today, not tomorrow. And by the time the buildout is complete it will be yesterday’s architecture. We should be thinking 2:1 or 3:1 (smartphone, tablet and laptop.) Even this, as a picture of the future of education, is limited. The world of the “internet of things” is right around the corner.
