A FEW EXPERT PREDICTIONS... BETH BLECHERMAN In 10 year's time computers, smartphones, TV's and tablets will all converge with wireless access and accessories (including more advanced built in camera's) so kids will be using their devices for everything (as a toy, watch movies, reading, doing homework, voice, video chat, capturing memories). That functionality exists now - but only some devices have some features. In the future kids will be able to do all the same functions throughout devices TECHMAMAS TOM ARMENANTE I think in 10 years that children's interaction with technology will be mainly gesture based and if input is required the keyboard would use holographic technology instead of a physical device MATTHEW MARLEY I wouldn't be surprised if we see Schools creating their own apps allowing parents to keep up with the child's progress (Big Brother). Kids could also use this as a learning tool, for example they could use the apps to access their homework, see what classes they have the following day etc. I also think there will be new ways for kids to learn using modern technology, look at Kinect from Microsoft they are continuing to evolve this platform and we could see it introduced into their desktop 0S's in the very near future, this would allow children to physically interact with the computers helping them to learn while proving an engaging, fun experience. We may even see things like Google Goggles be adapted for kids allowing them to communicate, chat, play games all from the glasses References: webtise.
