A great story if you have time to listen, I heard it on the radio. It's not available online yet but it will be available soon the page says.
Things I found interesting:
The role of cognitive science in developing educational experiences.
Examples of two camps - total ICT integration in 0-13 education (to the point of taking over teaching roles traditionally held by human teachers), and total ICT removal in 0-13 education.
Both camps take the approach of maintaining and developing creativity and critical thinking (versus filling empty vessels), but each side sees their own methods/tools as best for achieving this.
IMHO we can be creative without ICT, but ICT opens new avenues/ways to be creative and communicate creative processes and output. As to what age range is best to begin embedding ICT I have no idea. What I do know is that I have provided educational software on tablets and PC's for my own kids and without doubt they are learning -e.g. Math (Mathletics), English (Reading eggs), colours/shapes/animal names/etc (toddler apps on tablets). They also play outside, build using lego, watch TV, attend school, engage in sport, etc. What ever happened to balance?
