    • Co-construction as 21stC pedagogy?
      • Not all in agreement with this view…
      • “ My criticism in brief is that constructivism maintains the widespread, commonsensical, subject-centred, Aristotelian-empiricist epistemological paradigm, and by correctly pointing to a major error in empiricist assumptions, it then swings to a relativist epistemology without abandoning the paradigm itself”.

    • Personalisation = One to One Learning?
    • One to one learning or computing?
      • Bette Manchester:
      • “ There is no question that a laptop for each student is critical if you are trying to personalise the learning for every child.
      • In student centered classrooms these tools need to be in the hands of students 24/7.
      • … .a cart model continues the traditional teacher centric classroom, one in which the teacher controls the resource”.
