Thank you for coming!
Can ALL learners benefit?

"A SOLE is not a content provider"
"We've created a world where children can learn on their own... and we should be proud of that"
"We didn't have enough teachers in remote areas. Then we realised that was not a bad thing after all."
"Pedagogy needs to include the internet"
Why do people slip on wet surfaces?
Work it out with people around you in groups of 4;
Decide who you want to work with;
Change groups at any time;
Move around the classroom and hear/use what the other groups are working on and share information;
Use the wi-fi in this room.
Ask me, for I know nothing!
Children work independently,
have complete freedom.
Very mixed reactions.
