  19. “I don‟t thinkeducation is aboutcentralized instructionanymore; rather,it is the process [of]establishing oneselfas a node in a broadnetwork of distributedcreativity.”– Joichi Ito (2011) @joi Image: CC BY-NC-SA
  20. #studentvoiceSocial networking...“Recently our class has begun to use moresocial networking sites like Facebook andtools like DropBox to share notes and keepup to date with lectures. I found this to be agreat benefit in studying and managing mywork.”
  21. #studentvoiceKhan Academy...“Strange putting a face to the voice ofmy first year maths lecturer!Khan Academy is possibly one of themost useful sources for studentsstudying maths. The idea is simple, If youdont understand the first time youwatch it... watch it again.”
  22. #studentvoice“If a student is working on anassignment and they don’t understandsomething, who better to ask then to askthe lecturer who set the assignment!Twitter allows this question to beposted instantly, the lecturer or indeedanother student would be very promptin their response.”
  23. #studentvoice“Twitter allows lecturers to instantlyshare their ideas, websites or posts that theyhave just discovered themselves withstudents, instead of having to wait until thenext lecture....can also allow people who are not in theclass to engage in the classroom discussion.Twitter lets the classroom open up andengage to a world full of people withexperience and knowledge.”

  36. HISTORY HISTORY illuminates THE FUTURE
  37. “Our concern as educatorswhen we inquire into the future should not be one of preparing ourselves for an inevitable future and attempting to „future-proof‟ our systems...
  38. Instead, we should see the relationship between the future and educationas a reciprocal dialogue of anticipation, adaptation and creation.” Keri Facer (2011) Learning Futures: Education, technology and social change
