I have been living under a rock for a few weeks and just saw this video today. It blew my mind and I have been showing it to everyone who will take 4 minutes to sit down and watch. I get really excited about new technology because I can only imagine how things will be when my 3 year old starts high school. Imagine sitting in class with a HoloLens and on your desk you can see whatever topic is being taught; whether it is the biology of a frog, the War of 1812 or a trip to distant planets.
Years ago my mom used to run a company that would teach teachers how to use computers in the classroom. It was partially funded by Apple and she would instruction them on the benefits of PowerPoint, spreadsheets and using the internet. I think it might be time to restart that company, between tablets and virtual reality machines, educators could make school as entertaining as a video game. Okay, maybe not, but at least more interesting than someone lecturing and scribbling on a board.
So here is my wish that the new technology that is revolutionizing gaming will find its way into our education system as well.
