  1. Well done Warrick – there’s some very useful stuff here.
    For most countries that have tried laptop type programs there are some more fundamental problems – mainly in relation to re-shaping the concept of “Teacher”.
    Fundamental questions about our approach to pedagogy remain – the laptops just give us an opportunity to thionk more deeply about what and how we teach.
    I’ve got quite a lot of the Ken Robinson stuff – it is very thought provoking on many levels.
    Also worth checking out is Martin Westwell.
