Just need to remember they are tools and not the teacher themselves.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 15, 2014 11:45 AM

Not every student has global opportunities. . .yet. However, as educators implement technology and build networks to reach around the globe, students can have remarkable experiences. And it doesn't take much to connect students to an expert in the field. Skype and Google Hangouts have been offering that capability for a while. We need to encourage our teachers to be bold and explore the world with our kids.

5G will also run faster, a lot faster. - 100 times faster

Prof Tafazolli now believes it is possible to run a wireless data connection at an astounding 800Gbps - that's 100 times faster than current 5G testing.  When Samsung announced in 2013 it was testing 5G at 1Gbps, journalists excitedly reported that would mean an HD film could be downloaded in a second.  A speed of 800Gbps would equate to downloading 33 HD films - in a single second.

interactive plastic cards are a step between virtual cards and the current plastic cards. A step lower than the Coin product to some extent.I recall working with similar cards about 10 years ago which generated 3D secure PIN token in realtime for online payments use. Costs were too prohibitive for issuers to implement though. Wonder if these cards will face a similar fate.
