Learn, unlearn and relearn
When do we let go of stuff that we no longer need?
So few people Question the fundamental aspect of what school actually is. More than 10 ears ago kids were programming in logo on their own laptops in Melbourne. Great teachers are the ones who have kept this going.
Why wont' those teachers use the technology?
Technology is not just about using the tools, it means changing the pedagogy.
Teachers need more PD. But even with this 80% still didn't feel comfortable using technology. Workshops don't really work because then teachers have to go back to the classroom. PLN also aren't in the classroom. Where teachers learn is not where they teach. Teaching is a traditionally isolated profession.
Question whether more PD is needed. Why not teach students to support teachers using technology. Students are 92% of population in most schools. Students are then able to provide solutions to problems and can learn along side teachers. Some models of students being the support.

Michelle Selinger Sylvia Martinez We have to figure out how to teach students how to apply knowledge to real life problems Kids actually learn more outside of class when in conversations with their friends: not in class with teacher.
Home work has become class work & vice versa.
Education is the only industry where ICT has NOT changed the processes.
Give teachers immediate feedback of how children are learning.
A massive shift of control by the teacher to students.
The govt has an audacity to state that every kid should have their own computer when there are schools that have been doing this for 20 years right in their own back yard Papert - Why are we still having conferences on computers in education? 1990
2004 - still trying to work out how to use the tools to improve education and that is why we are still holding conferences
Predicted in the 1960s predicted that every student would have their own computer but schools would get in the way.
Why are we still debating 1:1 & personal computing?
We are so excited when our students do anything on the computer. We need to expect amazing things not just mediocre stuff.
Engagement is when the learner is in a flow and enjoyment in what they are doing.
Web 2.0 technology doesn't need to be taught. It just works and could be learnt in 3 mins. To understand is to invent.
What do the kids do with the computers in our school?
Are they proud of what they did?
Educational computing is about software not hardware. Every kids needs a computer with creative software.
