David Pogue, technology critic for the New York Times, delivered an entertaining and thought-provoking keynote to kickoff PETE&C for 2008. He was masterful in both presentation style and content, and he painted a picture of the technology trends he sees. Some of them will impact education, others not so much unless mobile phones are allowed to enter school buildings, and are implemented as learning tools. Concluding with his rendition of "I Bought an iPhone" to the tune of "My Way", acoompanying himself on the piaono, no lewss, made this the most memorable keynote at a conference I've attended in a long time.
