Assemblages vs. Cyborgs

What appeals to me about this “Technology in Education: A Future Classroom” video is that the socio-materiality of the classroom is more of utopian, yet feasible assemblages than the dystopian, cyborg perspectives that we have been sharing in this course so far.
I think it is interesting that the primary technology is glass (silicon-based) vs. the cyborg materials of metal, tubes, pipes and wires. I also appreciate the harmonious ‘coupling’ of the human (e.g. students; foregrounded teachers) and technology. The learning environment is fluid, dynamic, organic, tactile, creative and collaborative.
