come da titolo:

Q. Tablet computers are big these days. The Surface tablet was just released by Microsoft last week, and iPads are all over campuses, but it doesn't sound like your approach has been to give devices to students and hope things change that way. What do you think needs to happen for factors like tablets to really make a difference? Or is that not even part of the equation?

A. Just giving people devices has a really horrible track record. You really have to change the curriculum and the teacher. And it's never going to work on a device where you don't have a keyboard-type input. Students aren't there just to read things. They're actually supposed to be able to write and communicate. And so it's going to be more in the PC realm—it's going to be a low-cost PC that lets them be highly interactive.
But the device is not the key limiting factor at this point, at least in most countries. If we ever get the curriculum to be super, super good, then the access piece, which is the most expensive part, will be challenging, requiring special policies to let people get access. The device, you'll be able to check out of the library a portable PC, so I don't see that as the key thing right now.

Beh, ognuno tira acqua al suo mulino..
Bisogna vedere se riuscirà a far firmare ai governi una convenzione per mettere il suo tablet nelle scuole pubbliche.
E lì, si sà che non stanno a vedere di sicuro i Benchmark delle prestazioni, ma semplicemente quanto ci guadagnano loro stessi..
Brutto ma vero!
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
