Tech-Time : What is Thunderbolt?


What is Tech-Time?

Tech-Time is a category on the Tech Teachers web site that consists of short videos of interest that a teacher can use to show to his/her class at the end of the day/cycle/lesson to generate discussion, inspire, create interest, inform or perhaps even help solidify some of the concepts being taught in CAT "theory".

I try find videos that I can use in my class and share them here on the web site in the category called Tech-Time. I hope you can use these videos too for your classes.

A folder with ALL featured Tech-Time videos in MP4 format is available in the Resources section

What is Thunderbolt and what can we expect from it in the future?

From Wikipedia: “Thunderbolt (codenamed Light Peak) is a hardware interface that allows for the connection of external peripherals to a computer. It uses the same connector as Mini DisplayPort (MDP)

Thunderbolt was co-developed by Apple and Intel. It was commercially introduced on Apple’s 2011 MacBook Pro, using the same Apple-developed connector as Mini DisplayPort, which is electrically identical to DisplayPort, but uses a smaller, non-locking connector. Though the Thunderbolt trademark was registered by Apple, full rights belong to Intel which subsequently led to the transfer of the registration from Apple to Intel.”
