tablets for communication,
the idea of a portable form
of information gathering,
storage and sharing has
shaped the way we connect with
each other and teach our students. GRiD Systems
GRiDPad 1988 At first, the idea of a light-weight, low-cost electronic device with a touch screen, keyboard and internet connection was radical, which meant that many ideas never went past drawings or prototypes.

"Minority Report" (2002) The idea of tablet devices
has been in our minds for a
while, and has even evolved in film from portable screens, to tablets similar to those today, to retractable transparent screens. Some say inspiration for our real technology has come from films like these. Apple Newton 1993 "While there were tablet computers before the iPad, it isn't a stretch to say that the iPad sold more in it's first year of existence than all preceding tablets put together." ("The Rise of the Tablet") In 2011, Steve Jobs claimed we have moved into a post-PC era. (Ip) The iPad is filling a space that computers
could not before, but is it a need? More people now are considering an iPad over a netbook or laptop. (Hardy) The form, speed, convenience and range of media of the iPad has put it first in the minds of consumers over similar products, and Apple's frequent upgrading of devices has helped it to dominate the tablet market by providing several well-known products and pushing the idea of "sleek, new and fast." (Ip) "Despite increased competition from other operating systems and hardware on a near-constant basis, Apple has retained its leadership role in the current tablet craze." (PCMag) Apple iPad 2010 The Microsoft
Tablet PC: Did it
ever stand a chance? iPad with Retina display and iPad mini Samsung Galaxy S
Tab 2 10.1 Kindle Fire HD Tablets have changed our interaction with not only text-based resources, but also the average media we would come across throughout the day - advertisements, news, videos and other information. Tablets like these have altered how we interact with the average media we've become used to, and now those media are changing their ways on how to reach us. While tablet users are about 11% of computer users, about 53% of those users read the news on a daily basis. Tablet users tended to be more avid
readers than non-tablet users. While there is a general trend of moving
from print to tablet or e-readers, few
people said they would pay for the news. 4% of young professionals and college
students said their main source of
information is a newspaper The younger the generation, the more
mobile and connected they are than the
generation before them. Tablets have become
a sign of the next
generation, where
their use determines
what medium is successful over others. The phrase, "there's an app for that" has taken on a meaning such that if there isn't an app for it, there is no "it." -(Miller, "The Great Tablet Hope") McLuhan's Tetrad on Tablets for Students "The device that changed everything is now changing the classroom." Record students learning through apps, notes and information-keeping functions Connect with people outside the classroom with social media and communication utilities Access thousands of books at various levels, which children can use to interact with and review text and skills Apps! Apps for Sale! Montessori Numbers Word Grab Phonetics Assistive Chat Allow students with special needs to communicate with Augmentative Alternated Communication Device Apps Practice several subjects at a wide range of grade levels Interactive Alphabet Audobon Mammals Tablets are one marker of how we are going to be interacting with our media. Fast, accessibly, easy and all at the same time if we please Children who are being taught in electronic-rich classes are an example of what our classrooms and education could look like, but use of these devices should be thoughtful and relevant. If a medium wants to be successful, it needs to be able to interact with us directly through our devices. Our technology is creating new demands for the media that wants to get our attention. The medium might not be shaping us. With these devices, we can shape the medium. "The Rise Of The Tablet." Library Technology Reports 48.3 (2012): 7-13. Academic Search Complete. Web. 27 Jan. 2013.
