Learning technologies and schools of the future

British Council for School Environments has an excellent report for people to download about learning technologies and schools of the future.

The report discussess Web2.0 and its impact:

"Technology enables learners
effectively to bypass the transmission mode of pedagogy which has often dominated
practice in schools. Learners are instead
able not just to find out information for
themselves, but to join communities and
discussions where facts, information and
knowledge are challenged and tested."

There is an interesting table comparing 20th century pedagogy and 21st century ICT-enhanced pedagogy.

The report discusses the needs of teachers and how professional development may be delivered as well as the shape of education for the future.

"Will learning become a continuum between locations, as the personalized learning environment travels alongside learners, linking their communities at home, at school and internationally?"

The report is well worth taking the time to read.
