DayTime 5/19

Hello to my loyal DayTime followers (both of you!!) and welcome to all of the SCHift readers!  I’m pretty excited today because my DayTime blog will be SCHifted (pun intended) to the newly introduced SCH Innovation team blog.  If I write an interesting/meaningful blog, I’m certain to at least double my followers by the end of the school year.  If that does in fact does occur, the 4 or 5 of us will head out on the town (your treat)!!

 

Ok, now that my comedy intro is complete, let’s get down to business.  DayTime will be a day later than usual this week, as I’m currently off campus at a Managing iOS Devices in K-12 Education conference.  We’ll meet on Thursday 5/19 at 10:00 AM in the carpenter gallery.  Please come with any questions, concerns or ideas, related to technology (or sports because I know tech can get boring!).

 

I’ll keep this post short and close  with a couple of videos (I’m willing to bet most of you skipped the text anyway!), the first provides us with video evidence that iPad and other tablets were predicted back in 1994 (although the video looks like it was captured in the 70s).

 

“It may be difficult to conceptualize the idea of digital paper, but in fact, we believe that’s what’s going to happen,” says then Knight-Ridder director Roger Fidler in this eerily prescient video from way back in 1994.”  Read more:

Check out the video!!

The second video comes from Sir Ken Robinson (I often post videos and articles from Sir ken), he shares with us real-life stories on pursuing your own passions, changing directions and why you can’t plan life “like a production line.”   One of my favorite quotes from the video “None of the big philosophy firms are hiring at the moment” 🙂 You’ll understand when you watch the video, click on the link below to watch:
