It's amazing how much I like him now since he stopped being CEO of MS. The things he's done to make the world a better lately have been phenomenal.

I have to agree with him. Sometimes the old ways of learning things are the best. Technology often gets in the way of good teaching and learning.

I'm not too certain either. Technology can sometimes be more an obsticle than a learning tool.

One instance where it can be beneficial is the medical field, training interns on surgical procedures could help by showing them exactly what is going on during the procedure. Normal classrooms, I agree with Bill on this though.

The same man once said face-to-face college lectures will be replaced by online lectures.

So what better way to watch a lecture on an iWatch? Sorry I meant Google Glass.
