I saw a blog post on Technology Trends by Phil Long today that featured this youtube video produced by Microsoft Office Labs that shows how the company envisions the interface between man and machine in 2019.  Even though, as Phil mentions, the interfaces remind one of that seen in the movie Minority Report, I do think the topic is facilitating. 

As I struggle with faculty and students using some of the more complicated technology in Blackboard, I have to give thought to why mobile technology comes so easily, especially to students.   I am convinced it the interface is one of the key issues.  The technology within this video is interactive, visual and intuitive as the devices and content intersect.  Rarely do I see students or faculty looking at tutorialsL.
