As the current Government prepares to be swamped by ideas on the future direction of ICT and learning, they could do a lot worse by putting most of it in a shredder and picking out this small electronic pamphlet as the cornerstone of the way ahead. Of course they won't. Suggesting that kids might work better in groups without specialised teachers and 4 to a machine! What would the entire education establishment and its techie suppliers do then?
However, if you teach I recommend you read (it'll take 2 hours) and try out some of ideas. I've done so. They work. Only I can't see OFSTED being too impressed with my no-part no plenary lesson plan!
