1 to 1 To put it another way “Its about the ‘headware’ not the hardware.” Ted McCain-author of Understanding the Digital Generation
The future of education “Because we can connect to any information whenever we need it, the concept of time as it is structured in schools is forever changed. “ “For the first time in the history of education, the teacher, student, and content do not need to be in the same place or even be together at the same time.” Ian Jukes-Windows to the future
