Kids click, but teachers don't compute?

More interesting comment on technology and schools. I just taught a couple of workshops this afternoon on these issues - should have checked the paper beforehand!

Some arguments here are a mite better than those in the article below, but there is still a deficit view of teachers and their skills and attitudes. Oh, those bad old teachers and their out of date skills!

What about the NSW Computer Education group's 'mission' to 'show teachers not merely how to use software "but how to use it to excite kids".'

Mmm, excitement.
