Want data? We got it.

I sometimes get questions from other more sceptical teachers asking things ‘where’s the data? for the kinds of technology related concerns that I’m always talking about as being more and central to learning. I remember nodding vigorously when one speaker at one conference said something like ‘If you looking for proof that technology should be in contemporary learning, you’re asking the wrong questions’. Something like that. Precise quote hey!

Or, I remember several occasions when someone (usually the someone with the financial clout) will say something in a meeting like, ‘Yes, but where’s your evidence that this ipad thing is ever going to take off?’ or ‘What other schools are using wikis?’

So, I was interested in this ‘Internet Trends’ slideshow a colleague alerted me to today. Over a hundred slides. Scroll it through. Put the pieces together. What does this have to do with learning? If you’re asking that, you’re asking the wrong questions!
