UPDATE: The "it" I want (described below) is less this specific tool. Paul -- see comments -- speaks very well to the fact that the process can be done in other ways, esp. if you are skilled in 'patching' it together on other fronts. What I mean by "it" is the inevitable process being a natural part of what happens in my classroom (heck, all classrooms). A truly integrated space where technology and wonder combine without it being a 'big deal' to do so. This tool -- or the promise of this tool -- reminds me that that is the "it" I want. The tool below is just a provocation for wondering aloud, not an endorsement of the actual technology itself.
Now. I want it now.
Correction. I want it for ALL OF MY STUDENTS now. Right now.
Okay, perhaps I can wait. Perhaps. Afterall, rarerly do beta versions fully live up to the marketing 'story' when emerging tech products are just rolling of the assembly line -- hello, iPhone -- but the educational implications for students and teachers are common-sense stunning. In. My. Humble. Opinion.
Nah, who needs waiting. I want it now!
Psst...thanks to DK and Paul for knocking the question back and forth on Twitter a few hours ago. A great discovery. Certainly see it coming up at some point in time during the 'learning in the future' all-school presentation/workshops tomorrow I'll be leading.
