Synchronicity or Prophecy?

Yesterday morning I did the keynote for the California League of Middle Schools Technology Conference. The presentation took a look at what changes in technology lie ahead in the next few years and what changes in teaching they might enable. I used the occasion to dummy up my own fantasy school-oriented tablet computer, a larger version of the iPod. Just for fun, I included a mockup of the CNN page for one day in 2012. It took a few seconds for people in the audience to notice the headline and it got a nice laugh that rippled slowly from the front to the back of the room.

Coincidentally, Michael Feldman at Dowbrigade photoshopped up his own fantasy. I hope we're both right.
