Oscars iPad Air Ad Showcases Learning
At last night's Oscars ceremony, more than fancy dresses, awkward moments
and enviable acting talent were on display. Apple debuted their new iPad Air ad and the value of mobile learning took center stage. With audio from director, Martin Scorsese's recent graduation speech at NYU, the short piece further put learning front and center as high schoolers showed the world how (apparently?!) easy it is to make a movie with an iPad. Scorsese points-out:
Every step is a first step. Every brush stroke is a test. Every scene is a lesson. Every shot is a school. So let the learning continue.”
Beautiful sentiments and ones that reminded me of the ethos of our NewLearningTimes.com Seen in NY
