What appeals to me about this “Technology in Education: A Future Classroom” is that it offers a more about utopian vision of ‘assemblages’ in the socio-materiality of the classroom and and is less about other dystopian cyborgian visions that we have been sharing. It think it is interesting that glass (silicon) is the primary material rather than metal, wires, pipes which prominent in the cyborg representations. Also, there is a more comfortable ‘coupling’ of the human (students, and foregrounded teacher) with the technology. The learning environment is organic, dynamic, creative, and collaborative.
“the human brain is very plastic” (Professor Warwick)… a vision for the future is to “keep memories intact.”
