I was looking for examples of how technology changes lives and found this video of Steve Gleason a former American Footballer using a Microsoft Surface, I think it was part of a commercial at the Super Bowl recently. It really is inspiring stuff! Always good to balance the more negative impacts of technology in the media and society with life changing stories.
I’m really excited about hearing more of these stories from teachers all over the world at the Microsoft Expert Educator Global Forum in a couple of weeks time. Like previous events I have been inspired by teachers all over the world who with the support of Technology companies like Microsoft make an incredible impact in their communities.
Another great short video example was surgeons using Kinect technology
