A close-up wide angled but abridged look at projectors and other classroom technology, product reviews and releases, tradeshows, debates and conspiracy theories as well as humble observations on schools and screens.

Will the Concept of Classroom Change Forever?

Microsoft's Research wing houses an infinite number of technology possibilities that will never come to market, primarily because of cost issues. I am fairly sure this one, called Illumishare will be different as its components are tried and true technologies already with us: a camera, projector, computer and Skype. As 21st Century classroom technology in the purest sense it will enable the walls of the traditional classroom to melt away alongside the walls that surround countries, cultures and concepts. The push for 21st Century skills acquisition is inspired by the emergence of technologies such as this that will demand we collaborate as citizens of the world rather than simply members of an office team.
