  • Blog Post: Using 1:1 to Unlock Learning: Teacher Professional Development

    Excerpt from ‘ Using 1:1 to Unlock Learning’ This is the most important but often the most over looked aspect of any 1:1 initiative or technology deployment designed to change culture and teaching methodology.

  • Blog Post: Tablets in Education: Responsible Use as part of a 1:1 Learning Project

    Excerpt from ‘Using 1:1 to Unlock Learning’ Your school should already have a policy on ICT acceptable and responsible use.

  • Blog Post: Cool new devices for schools at CES

    Originally posted on Anthony Salcito’s Education Insights Blog . I’m back in the office after a quick trip to Las Vegas for CES .

  • Blog Post: Information Security – how the other half live

    This Friday, my colleague Ian McKenzie, is hosting a Live Meeting on “Information Governance and Assurance in the Public Sector”.

  • Blog Post: The netbook Wall of Cool at BETT

    One of the things that is new on our BETT stand this year is a netbook “Wall of Cool”, with a dozen netbooks to look at and compare. Although there are loads of suppliers at BETT, all showing off their latest mini laptops, you can’t visit a stand elsewhere where they are all lined up together. So you...

    Yesterday, I wrote about the different products that are creeping out into the market, which offer the chance to change your model for ICT provision in school, and to make a rapid shift to ICT-enabled teaching and learning for all pupils.

  • Blog Post: Ultra-low cost laptops

    The market for ultra-low-cost laptops is continuing to move forwards. At the point when the Asus EeePC/Asus RM miniBook were released, it created a buzz in education. Basically it was easy to see how it would be possible to imagine that every student could have a device, which is cheap, light and small...

  • Blog Post: Last week at BETT 2008

    Last week I was very quiet on the blog - mainly because it was BETT week, when 29,000 of the UK's most enthusiastic educational ICT people gather at Olympia for a few days. Most visitors only come for a day, but those manning stands are there for the whole week, including Saturday. Perhaps next year...
  • Blog Post: Low Cost laptops for students

    The announcement of the One Laptop per Child scheme a few years ago - the $100 laptop - stimulated a lot of discussion and debate. Now, a few years down the road, it has also led to an enlarged debate about the right level of provision for students. Do they all need a device, in their hand, all of the...
