  • Consistent theme in all presentations- technological solutions are crucial – fitting to end The task of this presentation is to examine the progress and future potential for ICTs and e- learning in the education sector in Australia- we have been a leader; still perform well and have some wonderful innovations- but want to do better. But, I want to strike the right balance- its important to take a hard look at our successes and challenges and I don’t think Aust is very different to others 1 st my perspective- not a technologist- rather an educationalist; and 2 nd take a system perspective v. an innovator; lots of small scale successes - what counts for me is scale and how a system wide solutions support our mainstream concerns- student outcomes, effective accountability, access and equity, facilities improvement etc. 2 papers- a short account of our progress and a useful resource –a set of guidelines for facilities design – illustrative of the Australian vision.
