  1. Input Technologies or “DigiTools” Revolution What it all means …

  2. Favorite Verbal Bloopers • Apocryphal: 1940s or 1950s, IBM Executive, “Only 1/2 dozen computers will be needed to handle all the processing needs for the entire world.” • Real: 1980s, District Technology Committee, “The IBM PC isn’t a real computer.” • Real: Early 1990s: A computer teacher vetoed our first Windows lab, "DOS will never go away. No self-respecting professional would ever wish to take her hands off the keyboard to use a mouse!”

  3. Favorite Verbal Bloopers • 1994, District Tech Coordinator, “Only administrators need e-mail." • Early 1990s, WordPerfect Marketing Manager, “The Microsoft Office Suite is no threat to WordPerfect." • Mid-1990s, Novell Executive, “Why should we worry about the Internet? We have 40 million users and they only have 10 million users.”

  4. Favorite Verbal Bloopers • Mid-1990s, Web education enthusiasts, “Internet distance education and online courses will replace most general education classes in college.” • Mid-1990s, Net Geeks, “Online shopping will eclipse shopping at brick & mortar stores like Wal-Mart .”

  5. Michael Dell Bill Gates • One of these men was guilty of a blooper . . . at Comdex 2001

  6. What’s the Fuss?

  7. Bill Gates-- Comdex 2001 in November • “The Tablet takes cutting-edge PC technology and makes it available wherever you want it, which is why I'm already using a Tablet as my everyday computer. It's a PC that is virtually without limits -- and within five (now 4) years I predict it will be the most popular form of PC sold in America." • (Bill Gates Keynote Speech, Comdex 2001, downloaded from HTTP://

  8. Michael Dell -- Comdex 2001 in November • “COMDEX is a great time to remind us of all the wonderful technologies that are in search of a problem, and unfortunately, not all of those will actually be demanded by customers." …crash and burn • (Dell, Comdex 2001, downloaded from HTTP://,3959,6158.00.asp)

  9. Computers Must Change

  10. Computers Must Change

  11. Computers Must Change

  12. Computers Must Change

  13. New Tablets Fall of 2002 Compaq Tatung Fujitsu

  14. Microsoft Windows Professional XP • Tablet PC Edition • Microsoft Office XP • Speech and handwriting recognition built in • Dragon NaturallySpeaking or IBM ViaVoice

  15. Bill Gates-- Continued • "The kind of devices we'll be working against, the user interface ... will be fundamentally different than it is today. People will look back and say, … • 'Wow! Why did I buy a PC that was big and I couldn't take it to a meeting and I couldn't talk to it? What was that all about?'" • July 3, 2000 (US News and World Report)

  21. What’s the Fuss?

  22. Implication # 1Smash the Desktop and Laptop Markets … in 4 years

  23. Implication # 2Speech Will Reduce Certain Injuries • 10.5% Carpal • 25%-33% RSI • 600,000 per year

  24. Bill Gates-- Continued . . . • “I’m a great believer in voice-recognition software… the state of the art is advancing, and . . . you may want to talk to your computer as much as you type-or more.” January 12, 1999

  25. Implication # 3New Computer Literacy Skills • Pronunciation & Enunciation • Reading Aloud Clearly • Penmanship

  26. The Holy Grail of Computer Input 1950’s 1960’s 1970’s

  27. Implication # 4Rapid Decline of Keyboarding Instruction 2004-2006 • Speech: 110-160 wpm @ 95% and above 2-6 hours • Handwriting: 20-30 wpm 1 hour … by 2006

  28. Bill Gates– May 2002 • “… the keyboard is a limiting factor and so the idea -- is to have a computer that instead of having the keyboard is more like just, say, a tablet of paper." • (Bill Gates Speech to Technology Alliance Summit, May 17, 2002, downloaded from billgates/speeches/2002/05-17techalliance.asp.)

  29. Another Verbal Blooper? • “Keyboarding instruction will be dead by the end of the decade for regular education students. This will impact k-12 and college students. On the job, typing will he reduced to a very narrow segment of the job market: Could be an 80-90% reduction in typing from current levels by2009.” Karl Barksdale, Closing the Gap, 2002

  30. Future of Keyboard ? • 2000, District Special Needs Services Director, “The day is coming soon when the keyboard will become an accommodation for those who can’t write or can’t speak.”

  31. Input Technologies • NBEA’s National IT Standards admonish students to, “Use a variety of input technologies” and: • "Develop proper input techniques (e.g., keyboarding, scanning, speech recognition, handwriting recognition, and the use of a touch screen or mouse), including safety methods to avoid repetitive strain injury." • (Page 85, National Standards for Business Education,, ISBN 0-933964-56-0)

  32. Washington State • DigiTools: Curricular approach to input technologies revolution. • Career and Technical Education Website: "The New Curriculum Suggestions for Digital Communication Tools (working towards replacement of the CTE Keyboarding Curriculum)“ • Speech Recognition • Handwriting Recognition • Machine Translation • Net/Web applications • Word processing and “Office" relative to new input technologies • Real, project-based curriculum, aligned with high academic standards •

  33. Reaching Everyone • How do we . . . • “Train 250,000 computer education instructors, 8 million teachers and support staff, and 80 million students in speech & handwriting recognition in less than eight years?” NBEA 2000: Anaheim, California • Train the Trainers in Business Education

  34. Last Millennium…

  35. Business Education Trainer of Trainers 2000 316 Business Education Trainers in 11 States

  36. Business Education Trainer of Trainers 2001 1,550+ Trainers in 38 States

  37. Business Education Trainer of Trainers 2002 4,000 – 5,000 Trainers of Trainers

  38. Growth Projections

  39. Input Technologies • In the past two years the debate has shifted from “Should we teach SR & HR?” to more urgent questions: • What tools do we need? • What’s the new scope and sequence? • How do we integrate new input technologies into our courses?

  40. Implication # 5Prepare for Workplace • 100 CEOs • Motorola & Plantronics, AT&T, Chevron, DOJ, KodakNortel, Teleco, Vodavi • Medical, Legal, Public Safety, All Businesses

  41. The Scope ofRapid Change • “This will be in everything before long.” (IBM Employee, 1997) • The Technology Always Wins… like a ratchet that only turns one way. • Size and form factors of computers are changing. Tablet computers with touch screens or stylus combined with speech will make keyboards optional. Palm-sized speech computers will be popular.

  42. Software Comparisons IBM ViaVoice 9 PC Mac Enhanced or OS X L&H Dragon NaturallySpeaking 6 Microsoft Office XP Speech Recognition

  43. Fifteen Strategies Slow Readers and ESL Students

  44. Strategy # 1Pen Use • How to hold the pen • Don’t press hard!

  45. Strategy # 2Where the Eyes Look • Watch the screen on the Graphire 2 • Watch the digital pointer on Tablet PC

  46. Strategy # 3Hand-eye Coordination • Play Games

  47. Strategy # 4Two-line Writing

  48. Strategy # 5Train Parents with the Kids

  49. Strategy # 7Pre-read Training Stories • Have students pre-read the enrollment stories. • Students take the stories home and practice reading the scripts aloud under parental supervision several days before they do their enrollment training.

  50. Strategy # 8Model Reading • Model how to speak clearly and continuously to a computer. Read the enrollment script pages aloud together in small reading groups before the students train their computers. • Read a single sentence or phrases first, and then allow them to read the same text back. Make corrections in their individual pronunciation at this time.
