The digital revolution has only just begun.

Christopher Bounds‘s insight:

I think Greg is spot on with this statement:

"A room decked out with laptops and iPods with access to high-speed wireless broadband is not a rich learning environment on its own.

The interactions between teacher and students and between the students themselves bring the environment to life and present opportunities for the technology to be useful in learning. The tools that have the most impact are those that allow for interactivity."

That realy is the nub of the problem. Interactivity is sometimes a big step for teachers, particularly those who have a limited range of peadgogical strategies. What will haunt us for years willl be the under-investment in teaching professional development. What is there and effective is being driven by grass-roots enthusiasm.
