<h2> Interview Questions </h2>
 
  
 +
==Introduction==
  
'''Personal Role and Project Expectations''' <br>
+
[[Image: complexity.jpg|thumb|600px]]
1) What is your role as a Chief Innovation Officer in the company? <br>
 
  
2) What are your expectations from this project? How would you like to benefit from the project (for Sanoma/on a personal level)? <br>
+
In this scenario set we explore the future of tablet technology in education.  Neither the desktop PC/laptop, nor the internet have thus far managed to revolutionize the education system, in spite of the enormous potential these technologies hold for education.  The excitement around tablet computers appears to be different though.  We explore whether the penetration of tablets in the educational system will differ from that achieved by previous computing technologies.  We also explore what form or manner this could possibly hold. In addition we broadened our research to explore whether technology, in general, will revolutionize the whole learning process. Our research focuses mainly on the EU region and refers both to primary and secondary education.
  
3) How broadly do you define education? What are your personal interests in tablets. <br> 
+
==Focal Issue==
  
4) How do you think learning will be like in the future? Do you see any other innovation having an impact on the future of learning and education? <br>
 
  
5) Reuse of content, what is the level of collaboration between the divisions of the company?<br> 
+
What is the future of tablet technology in education in 2025?
  
6) Which is the geographical focus that interests you? <br>
+
==Scenario Tree==
  
 +
[[File:ScenarioTree.jpg|600px]]
  
'''Sanoma's Business Model''' <br>
+
==Short Scenario Description==
1) What is the current business model for Sanoma Learning and Literature? <br>
 
2) Describe your main products (textbooks vs other learning materials) <br>
 
3) Who are your customers and the market you are addressing? Revenue sources? <br>
 
4) Who are your main competitors? <br>
 
5) Suppliers (i.e. Who provides content?) <br>
 
  
 +
'''School as Usual''' <br>
 +
  
'''Sanoma's Industry''' <br>
+
'''Another brick in the wall''' <br>
1) Is the industry driven by customers' demands and needs or is the company defining the future innovations (Apple)? <br>  
+
In this scenario,technology has fundamentally changed the way children learn. Moreover, the educational system is highly regulated and monitored by the EU governments. All EU countries have to abide to the uniform standards and rigorous testing imposed by the governments. Students are competing against each other in terms of performance as "student rankings" are published even at a daily basis. Students become highly competitive and aggressive due to the pressure to perform substantially better than their peers. <br>
  
2) Do you view companies like Google and Apple's interest in media as a threat? <br>
+
'''Tailored Learning, Tailored Life''' <br>
 +
In the Tailored Learning, Tailored Life scenario we find that technology has changed significantly the way education is delivered and the way that children learn.  Governments no longer control the schooling or education system, but children do not lead the learning process themselves.  Their learning is highly individualised and tailored to their specific talents, circumstances and interests. <br>
  
3) How do you see the market evolving in the short, medium and long term? What role do you see Sanoma playing in this market? <br>
+
'''Teacher, leave them kids alone''' <br>
 +
In this world, technology has significantly changed the way that children learn. Governments are no longer the primary drivers of the education system, and
  
 +
==Scenario Stories==
  
'''Obstacles to Adoption of Tablets for Education''' <br>
+
[[Image: tablet_evolution.jpg|thumb|Tablet Evolution|400px]]
1) Why tablets? Laptops and PCs were very slow in penetrating schools. Do you view tablets as a different case? <br>
 
  
2) Laptops and PCs revolutionized the learning experience. Do you see tablets as an extension of this trend? <br>  
+

[[Another brick in the wall]] <br>

+
==Interview Questions==
  
4) Do you see the tablets taking off? Under which conditions and when? <br>
+
[[Interview Questions]] explored with Bernard de Groot during an interview on 17 August 2010
  
5) (optional) Is there a security protocol? How constraining is it? <br>

==Key Group Learnings==
 +
* Group learning happens through language creation: By discussing and analysing the problem we created a terminology with a common understanding which allowed us create more surprising, plausible, deep and quality scenarios <br>
 +
* To build a good scenarios we dug deep below the surface by interviewing/watching people who had something interesting to say and challenge our way of thinking. In addition within the team we had diverse ways of thinking which helped for high quality scenario creation  <br>
 +
* Scenario thinking is offering a new way of thinking. In our group that was mainly facilitated through challenging each others' ideas and defying assumptions that we were not even aware of <br>
