This final chapter does not belong to any one section of the book. Instead it brings together all three section topics with an eye to the future. It combines the changing landscape of mobile technologies with the ways in which design processes are critical for the future and what children could learn using tomorrow's new mobile technologies. We examine where the future might take us in the blue sky ahead and, by doing so, we celebrate what is possible, question our assumptions, and look for clues from our past.
