Abstract: The use of technology in the classroom has a long history of both successful and unsuccessful implementations. There have been many promises and expectations about the role of technology to "solve" many educational problems. Interactive tabletops (and other similar interactive surface devices) offer new possibilities to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom, but they also impose new challenges. The prices are coming down but the question remains, can Interactive Tabletops been successfully implemented in a regular classroom? This talk presents a short overview of the work done on Interactive Tabletops for Learning and our research work at the University of Sydney to implement multiple tabletops to be orchestrated by a teacher at an authentic classroom environment. http://www.innovative-retail.de/index.php?id=111&L=0
