Apple's Future Is In These Six Areas

Apple's Future Is In These Six Areas | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Macquarie analyst Ben Schachter initiated coverage of Apple last night, giving the stock an outperform rating, and a price target of $US630.

Schachter’s bullish forecast is built around the success of iTunes, and services, which he thinks will be a profitable, high-growth business. He thinks the hardware business growth will fade. The iPhone will see single-digit growth, and the iPad and the Mac might stop growing altogether.

He builds his entire forecast around the current line of products. He doesn’t forecast products that don’t exist because … um, they don’t exist.

However! He does list six categories where he thinks Apple could attack and create new, high-growth businesses. In case you’re wondering what people think the future holds for Apple, here’s a peek.

Mark Pegrum's insight:

Interesting speculation on likely future developments at Apple.

'I was attacked for wearing Google Glass' | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Ubiquitous Learning | Scoop.it

With iPads, once we begin thinking beyond the confines of a page, anything is possible. Consider the video below created several years ago by two of my students. First they wrote plot summaries. Then they wrote character sketches. From there, they crafted paragraphs about theme, tying the visual and auditory elements of their videos back to the books. Finally, they created storyboards and bibliographies before producing and publishing their final product.

Worth taking a look at.  How many times have you heard people ask what their students can "do" on the ipad to submit their work.  This will walk you through using the ipad for writing.
