The End of Techno-Critique: The Naked Truth about 1:1 Laptop Initiatives and Educational Change

Here's an article my colleague Alan Bain and I wrote in response to a generation of techno-criticism in education. Was recently published in the Journal of Technology Learning and Assessment (2009, v 9 n 6), It contains a review of the key themes of that criticism. The context of previous efforts to reform education reframes that criticism. Within that context, the question is raised about what schools need to look and be like in order to take advantage of laptop computers and other technology. In doing so, the article presents a vision for self-organizing schools. For full article go http://bit.ly/4F8B5Z

Am keen to hear your thoughts about the current state of affairs in education, the role of technology in education, and what can be done to strengthen both.
