Ask students to read the short post and answer the following:
(1) Could tablets change how people do their work?
(2) Think of a specific job that would be changed to a large degree by using Office on the tablet rather than a laptop. How would that job be changed?
(3) Would a tablet provide an excellent tool for reengineering that job?
(4) Outline a possible new workflow that would be enabled to help make the job easier or more productive.
