Let’s remember…

From the BBC:

“Computers ‘do not improve’ pupil results, says OECD” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-34174796

From OECD:

“Schools have yet to take advantage of the potential of technology in the classroom to tackle the digital divide and give every student the skills they need in today’s connected world, according to the first OECD PISA assessment of digital skills.” http://www.oecd.org/education/new-approach-needed-to-deliver-on-technologys-potential-in-schools.htm

In short, it’s not about plonking students in front of a machine, it’s about being able to use the machine effectively and appropriately. Obvious?
