  7. 7. In 1965, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore saw the future. His prediction, now popularly known as Moore's Law, states that the number of transistors on a chip doubles about every two years. http://www.intel.com/technology/mooreslaw/index.htm
  8. 8. Moore's Law suggests that computers improve by a factor of 10 every 5 years. In educational terms that is pretty significant because it tends to be the length of time that a student stays in each stage of their education ... So it should take approximately 20 years to get an improvement of 10,000 times baseline. Ian Yorston
  9. 9. [From Paul Baran, quot; On Distributed Communications: MEMORANDUM: RM-3420-PR,quot; AUGUST 1964, the Rand Corporation (available online at: http://www.rand.org/publications/RM/RM3420/.)]

  14. 14. TB-L’s original vision The original thing I wanted to do was to make it a collaborative medium, a place where we (could) all meet and read and write. http://www.digitaldivide.net/articles/view.php?ArticleID=20

  16. 16. Small things, loosely joined
  17. 17. 1) Everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal; 2) anything that gets invented between then and before you turn thirty is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a career out of it; 3) anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it — until it’s been around for about ten years, when it gradually turns out to be alright really. Apply this list to movies, rock music, word processors and mobile phones to work out how old you are. Douglas Adams, 1999
  18. 18. 1985: Born — Internet 2 years old; Nintendo release 'Super Mario Brothers' 1990: Start primary school — WWW being conceived 1992: 7 years old — first SMS message sent 1995: Amazon, eBay founded 1996: Heading towards secondary school — Hotmail launched; pay-as-you-go mobile tariffs; instant messaging 1998: Teenage years — Google founded 1999: Studying for GCSEs — Napster; Blogger 2001: Wikipedia; iPod 2002: Studying for A Levels — social-networking services appear 2003: University — Skype 2005: Graduation approaches — YouTube John Naughton: http://oscal.files.wordpress.com/2007/05/lecture-text.pdf See also: http://www.preoccupations.org/2007/05/making_the_poin.html

  20. 20. … the internet is like the child pushing at boundaries of authority and challenging the established way of doing things - the business models from the last century, traditional media, long accepted notions of national jurisdiction and concepts of governmental control. The challenge is for the quot;pushedquot; - probably most of us here in this room - to resist the urge to push back: to regulate and legislate; to try to tame and to control. … successful companies are harnessing this new technology to do things in a new way … George Osborne, speaking at the RSA, March 2007
  21. 21. Prensky Digital Immigrants: • they print out their email • they write cheques to pay bills • they use phone books to look up phone numbers • they don’t multitask • they rarely use online tools personally or in the classroom Their students: • use many different media at once • ‘develop hypertext minds’ http://www.marcprensky.com/writing/Prensky%20-%20Digital%20Natives,%20Digital%20Immigrants%20-%20Part1.pdf
  22. 22. II so what are we doing?
  23. 23. III what could we be doing?

  37. 37. For me, the most important moment came reading a Sherlock Holmes story when I suddenly realised I'd been following the tale for several minutes having completely forgotten about the Iliad itself. — Andrew Marr, Guardian, 11 May 2007 http://books.guardian.co.uk/ebooks/story/0,,2077277,00.html
  38. 38. Used in, and for, distributed networks …
  39. 39. [From Paul Baran, quot; On Distributed Communications: MEMORANDUM: RM-3420-PR,quot; AUGUST 1964, the Rand Corporation (available online at: http://www.rand.org/publications/RM/RM3420/.)]
  40. 40. … a much better epistemology or theory of knowledge … says, instead of “I think therefore I am” … rather “We participate and therefore we are”. ... It is in participation with others that we come into a sense of self. ... understanding is basically socially constructed with others. John Seely Brown
  41. 41. IV … and so?
  42. 42. [We are] preparing kids to use the ageing tools of an old paradigm - rather than educating them for life in a networked society where they will need different kinds of knowledge and skills as yet undreamt-of by the QCA. By failing to recognise this, we are not only boring our children but also doing them a great disservice. Our schools are providing ICT training, whereas what is needed is ICT education. John Naughton
  43. 43. So … • creative, cross-curricular ICT • reverse IT and P2P work • blogs, wikis • audio- and video-casting • online photo galleries • RSS and aggregators • social bookmarking (del.icio.us) and tagging • social networks and personal learning networks • critical thinking (read and edit Wikipedia) • digital and media literacy throughout the school Acknowledgments to Demos: Their Space : Education for a digital generation (pdf)
  44. 44. … and • educate the parents • run a staff/pupil network council • “cool tools” monitor • above all, create and sustain an ethos of trust and openness
  45. 45. Uncontrollable Space?
  46. 46. Seek to influence — not control ICT education — not rote learning in and through Collaborative, distributed networks
