Hi Anne
I would be very interested in hearing your dissident voice. I myself am swayed by the cool toys but am getting more and more uneasy about how quickly (with little preparation) some teachers leap into using these new technologies. Teachers are missing the important step of creating a learning environment for these technologies to work well in. We need to ensure that the technologies we choose to use are really making a difference. One example is a school where a teacher heard about blogging, created blogs for students and then wondered why these students used them to flame each other not realising they were available for all and sundry to visit.
