"Creative Integration of Content Curation" By Ken Morrison as Part of the Apple Distinguished Educators One Best Thing Program.
Ken Morrison's insight:
Here is a PDF version of a 2013 multitouch digital book that I authored as part of the Apple Distinguished Educator program. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BySMkD5wcCQDRktyQS1yQ1RRcWs/view?usp=sharing This PDF version is missing many interactive elements, but you will get a taste of why I love using Scoop.it and how it helps me reach my personal learning goals and how it helped my students explore their topics and future careers more fully. If you have any ideas on how to improve a future version of this multi-touch book, please contact me.

Tech Time Warp of the Week: Steve Jobs Predicts the Future, 1980 | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
Steve Jobs knew the world would look like this. He knew that we would develop an intimately personal relationship with our computers, and he knew it as far back as the early '80s.
Ken Morrison's insight:

Here is a gem of a video from 33 years ago as a young Steve Jobs discusses his hope for the future based on what he sees from young students, his accounting assistants at Apple, and a farmer in Nebraska,

I also like his mentioning of 'obsoleting' clients.

Steve Jobs and John Lasseter interviewed by Charlie Rose (1996)

Steve and John talks about Pixar and their first smashing success, Toy Story. Steve was 41 years old. More Insanely Great Videos & Info at http://everystevej...

Ken Morrison's insight:

It is interesting to see Steve Jobs not in control of an interview.  at about 15 minutes, Jobs talks about how he is trying to build Pixar, his relationship with Disney, and he pretends to not be bitter about being kicked out of Apple.  More Phds worked on toy story than any movie in history..  jobs put $50 million of his own money in Toy Story.

Apple's introduction of two new iPhones — one, made of plastic in bright colors; the other, a more expensive aluminum model available in gold — may create two classes of users.

The State of the iPad in Education in 2015 — Emerging Education Technologies

The State of the iPad in Education in 2015 — Emerging Education Technologies | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
So, here we are 5 years down the road. How is the iPad faring in the world of education?

We’ve already seen that the iPad is still the dominant tablet in education … the undeniable king of the ivory-tower topped hill. While the Google Chromebook appears to be on its way to offering some real competition, only time will tell how that plays out. In any case, change is inevitable and healthy, and things are sure to keep evolving.

Moreover, anyone with a decent understanding of tech realizes that it’s not really about the device, it’s about what you do with it, and how well you do it. That being said, things are still looking pretty rosy for the first successful entry into the tablet computer market.

Steve Jobs Had a Favorite Expression: 'That's $h_t.' It Was Stunningly Effective. | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
By Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli“That’s shit!” was as common a response from Steve as a pointed question or a thoughtful discussion. He wanted smart answers, and he didn’t want to waste time on niceties when it was simpler to be clear, no matter how critical his response. “The reason you sugarcoat things is that you don’t want anyone to think you’re an asshole. So, that’s vanity,” explains Jony Ive, a crisply articulate Brit with the muscled frame of a boxer and a tendency to hunch forward over a table as he leans in to speak to you. As
