"To truly transform education through technology, we need to listen to experts, solution providers and each other." BETT 2016 promo slogan. After 20 years teaching ICT and Computer Science, if there is one thing I have learnt, it's not to listen to experts and certainly not to so-called 'solution providers'. Looking back on my career, i can't believe how much money must have been spent by schools introducing the latest must-have gadgets for classrooms, usually because these so-called experts and solutions providers managed to get access to a Government minister, do a pitch and sell them a pup. The common theme being of course that few of these experts, solutions providers and ministers have ever spent time in a real classroom of today. Even today, bodies like CAS are stuffed full of people with little to no teaching experience, and these bodies continue to press for constant change, constant spending millions and all without the practical knowledge needed of decades of classroom experience. Christ, some of these experts with little experience are evening training teachers!! The best teaching I ever did was using a whiteboard, a pen and talking to students, giving them facts, followed by examples, followed by structured questions that that get them to think ever more deeply.
