  4. 4. The Search<br />
  5. 5. The Search<br />Entry-level interactive slate<br />Inexpensive<br />Engaging lessons<br />Subject-specific toolbars<br />
  6. 6. McLuhan’s Tetrad of Overhead Projector<br />
  7. 7. McLuhan’s Tetrad of RM Classpad<br />
  8. 8. Interview with a Decision Maker<br />Brooke Parker, Mathematics Department Head of a Middle School<br />How does the RM Classpad enhance the resources present in the building?<br />What types of shortcomings do you foresee being the reason to replace the RM Classpad?<br />
  9. 9. Interview with an End User<br />LaTasha Arnold, Middle School Mathematics Educator<br />In what way have you incorporated the RM Classpad into your classroom instruction?<br />What devices, if any, do you no longer use as a result of having the RM Classpad?<br />
  10. 10. Six Forces that DriveEmerging Technologies<br />Evolutionary Technology<br />Rhymes of History<br />Disruptive Technology<br />Science Fiction<br />Increasing Returns<br />Red Queens<br />
  11. 11. Six Forces: Evolutionary Technology<br />New technologies are the result of numerous evolutions or modifications of existing devices.<br />The technology S-curve may be used to show the progression of new technologies over time. <br />
  12. 12. Six Forces: Evolutionary Technology<br />
  13. 13. Six Forces: Evolutionary Technology<br />Users did not have to be technological savvy to use the device.<br />Users were able to arrange the materials for display as they liked.<br />Users could obtain transparencies at a low cost.<br />Users could prepare the transparencies in advance.<br />Users could store the transparencies for later use.<br />Users were able to face their audiences while presenting material.<br />The devices are relatively large which makes them difficult to store and transport (Media, 1996).<br />Color transparencies are expensive to produce (Media, 1996).<br />Information from other sources is not transferred effectively to the transparency; therefore, users have to modify the material so that audiences are able to see the material (Media, 1996).<br />To advance to the next transparency, the user must physically replace the material.<br />Users cannot manipulate the information on the transparency.<br />Three-dimensional objects are not easily viewed; additionally, users are not able to manipulate them for better learning experiences.<br />
  14. 14. Six Forces: Rhymes of History<br />The use of the overhead projector as an instructional tool rekindled the use of other visual instruction devices. <br />
  15. 15. Six Forces: Disruptive Technology<br />“New technology with the same functionality of an existing technology, but it functions more efficiently, and then obsoletes that technology” <br />
  16. 16. Six Forces: Science Fiction<br />Science fiction acts as a catalyst for many emerging technologies.<br />Inventors’ imaginations are sparked by science fiction works.<br />Science fiction does not play a role in the emergence of the overhead projector.<br />Tablet PC-like devices from Star Trek are precursors to the RM Classpad.<br />
  17. 17. Six Forces: Increasing Returns<br />Increasing returns describes what happens when two competitive products hit the market at the same time<br />One technology will pull ahead of the other competing technology.<br />
  18. 18. Six Forces: Red Queens<br />This force describes what happens when there is a “huge competition between two technologies.” <br />These two technologies dominate the market to the point where other manufacturers become (or remain) obscure. <br />
  19. 19. What’s Next?<br />RM Education, the maker of the RM Classpad, lost $2.1 million in the first half of this fiscal year.<br />With products like the Apple iPad in the market, the technology of the RM Classpad is not powerful enough.<br />The Classpad will be in the supply closet within the next three years. <br />
