This TEDTalk was given by Thomas Suarez at TEDxManhattanBeach. Thomas is in the 6th grade at a middle school in the South Bay, and he’s made several apps for the App Store and established his own company,CarrotCorp.


Besides his fantastic presentation skills, Thomas is an amazing testament to how the younger generation is shaping the world of technology. What a smart kid. Steve Jobs would be very proud.


And we’re downloading his app, Bustin Jieber, as we speak. It looks fun.

A new survey, reported on recently at Apple Insider,  offers new evidence of the iPad’s growing momentum in education, and in particular in schools.

A new survey of technology directors in U.S. school districts found that all of them are testing or deploying the iPad in schools, and they expect tablets to outnumber computers in the next five years.

Analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray revealed the results of the small survey of 25 educational technology directors at a conference on the integration of technology in the classroom. The poll found that all of them were utilizing Apple’s iPad in schools, while none were testing or deploying Android-based tablets.

More interesting points from the survey:

– The directors who took part in the survey expect to have more tablets per student than computers in the next five years – and in this case the word tablet might as well be iPad.

– They also expressed the view that the iPad allows for individualized learning better than a traditional computer.

– iPads are being used to supplement computers – not replace them.

My 8 year old daughter’s class is using netbooks this year. I’m sure you’ll be shocked to learn that I think iPads would be much better for them.

What do you all think? Will we be seeing more iPads and fewer computers in classrooms over the next five years? If so, is that a good thing?

The official native Gmail app is back in the App Store today. The long awaited app had initially been released and then quickly yanked back on November 2nd, due to problems with notifications and possibly other bugs.

Today Version 1.0.2 of Gmail is available in the App Store – with this bit of guidance for those who have the original version installed:

If you already have the Gmail app 1.0.1 released on 2 Nov, you will need to uninstall or log out of the old app prior to installing the new app.

It’s interesting that they use the term ‘new app’ rather than update. That first launch was a pretty spectacular fail, so here’s hoping this one goes better for all those iOS device owning Gmail fans out there.

I removed the original version and installed the update just a short while ago. This time there’s no error on launching the app, and it shows up properly under Settings > Notifications – so hopefully Google’s got that part figured out.

Here’s an App Store link for Gmail – which is even more useful than usual as so far the updated app does not show up well if you search for it.
