Steve Jobs, the ‘visionary’ and co-founder of Apple sadly died last night. I think we can all say he was a great innovator who saw the way technology was moving long before many of his competitors did. His ideas and vision have been a great help to education and the way we see the world. His products have been brilliant for the world of teaching and learning.
In his own words he said; ‘that’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.’
Steve Jobs was born out of wedlock, put up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college, then changed the world. What’s your excuse? Thanks Steve for all you did.
