Dell Latitude 10 Tablet with Windows 8 - The Death of the Desktop
The Death of the Desktop and taking on laptops. This is my prediction of where we are going with computers in education. They are portable and have an interface that is catching on quickly. With Intel cutting back on Desktop technology development. The hand writing is on the wall and we just need to read it. A second factor is looking at the sales of Tablet devices. They are exponentially increasing in sales. There has never been a trend of sales like this in the adoption curve of technology. This is truly a disruptive innovation as talked about In the the book. "Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns" Also so that I am clear I think it will be a mix of operating systems, Android, Apple, And windows and I don't promote one over the other.
