SynergyNet has been actively developing applications for multitouch in the classroom for some time now. An area that has been identified as key to the sucess of such a massively multiuser multitouch project is the creation of a network of multitouch surfaces with sharable media. This has the potential to encourage collaboration when using IT on a fundamentally new level. One thing I would like to see is this approach is the development of an open standard for setting up group multitouch spaces and defining hierachical controls.
