Thinking about learning!

In Uncategorized on December 26, 2011 at 9:24 pm

Welcome to my thought’s! The aim of this blog is really for a place for me to put my thoughts on education and how technology can possibly influence and affect the may that students learn and teachers engage with them. For too long we have used the latest technology simply as a replacement for the last one and simply done the same things with them. Take the pencil, this has been superceeded by the desktop, the laptop, the netbook and I am sure the new generation of mobile devices. As Alan November has so eloquently put  that these devices have simply become “the $1000 dollar pencil”. We need to look at the needs of learners and how we can use the amazing opportunities that new technologies bring rather simple how it can replace the old ones.
