Hi all,

Gee there are a lot of computers being given out.

It will be interesting to see if there is a corresponding cultural/pedagogical change with the outlay. I have found when people have a computer that is the first step in breaking down the digital divide in relation to hardware . Giving teachers laptops and showing them how to use them for teaching and learning is a big positive step – not that these computers will do this.

The next step is breaking down the digital divide in terms of the skill set of the users – students and teachers.

Interesting times.

cheers MArtin
