What would a multi-touch device allow a learner to do that we can’t currently do???
First, it would solve Alan Novembers problem with SmartBoards…it would make them a student (as opposed to teacher) centric device.
Second, it would change the way we interact with computer. We would move from conforming to the mouse/keyboard world to a more intuitive “touch” world.
Third, we can better bring the world of data analysis to the masses thru data virtualization.
Fourth, no more learning (or re-learning) a specific GUI.
Fifth, it is really cool!
