The Top 10 tech trends for 2012

The Top 10 tech trends for 2012 | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

This piece is by Pete Cashmore for CNN online.


Intro:


From the continuing rise of tablet devices to the daily-deals craze and the return of the Internet IPO, 2011 has been a transformative year for technology.


Here's what caught my attention:


Touch Computing


New input methods will be the dominant trend of 2012. Tablet computers such as the iPad might seem like a nice alternative to desktop and laptop computers, but I believe they're more than that:


**They're replacements.


** the mouse will be superseded by touchscreens.


**The signs are obvious: Windows 8 and Mac OS X Lion, the latest desktop operating systems, borrow heavy from their mobile counterparts. These new interfaces essentially impose a touchscreen-inspired interface over the traditional desktop environment.


**Over time, this half-step will become a whole one, and mobile operating systems will dominate.


****The transition won't be complete by the end of 2012, but we'll be much further down the path, and using computer mice much less often.



**Here's the takeway to get you thinking about how your product or service fits into the bigger picture.


In short, 2012 is all about new ways to interact with our devices through touch and voice control, new lightweight ways to share content, a revolution in mobile payments and a plethora of rich Web applications -- not to mention the hundreds of new innovations that we've yet to dream up. I can't wait.

Why Mobile Learning Is Inevitable - Edudemic

Why Mobile Learning Is Inevitable - Edudemic | HigherEd Technology 2013 | Scoop.it

Mobile learning is not only on the rise, it’s inevitable.

As you can see in the presentation below (there’s just 24 slides, pretty easy to scroll through and worth it!) the number of smartphones being sold is soaring while other hardware (desktops, for example) are slumping. That might be why I’m not expecting any majorly exciting things out of next week’s WWDC announcement(s) by Apple. They’re expected to show off new Macbooks and perhaps an internet radio service.
