pitiful ict provision in schools
power of www immense
digital age provides greater
opportunities to learn than ever

LGFL services believes the definition of a good teacher will change
responsible students still key
engagement the key to great teaching/relevant
tools exist to make education exciting
schools must harness and embed technology

warned of a growing disconnect
schools may be seen as unconnected to future life
students powering down in school
challenges must be relevant young people need education more than ever
given problems the world faces q/a

bsf : gov should still invest heavily
assessment: schools not trusted by gov reflections
way ahead of most (but not all) schools in most e-respects
we have the right infra-structure
appetite to discover and use digital tecgnology strong amongst some staff
raising awareness of many new tools ( some being used)
we must plan to engage students through tools that reflect their experience
outside of schools (j2e desk top publishing works like computer gaming)
plan for outcomes (methods maybe come out of date before you have finished writing them!!)
i.e students to use digital-skills to present effectivley to an audience ( not present using Power-Point/Prezi etc)
fronter as we know it will soon be obsolete

history of schooling usual photos
geared to the needs of the day
1 to 30 traditional model outdated
very few people working in factories
ability to work independently with a range of web tools increasingly relevant to new industries
quoted Fiona Mullan, HR director of Microsoft Ireland

“We need to begin with our teachers. If they have access to continuous professional development they can ignite that spark and thirst for knowledge that we hope will encourage students to continue the development of their e-skills which will be vital for success in any career."

actions (1 to 3 years)
exploit lgfl content
