Excellent article Andrew. Our system has struggled with this for a long time. We have tended to focus our efforts on gate keeping the Internet/wifi access, controlling a network ‘image’ that standardizes applications, and limiting device options for staff and students. What we have not done, is exactly what you suggest – engaging students and teachers about what they are doing and how they are doing it. In essence, we are dealing with technology out of context. As teachers, we know that information taught without context and a clear connection to student needs and schema is poor pedagogy. The same is true of teacher professional development. Thanks for your insights.
