    It is particularly disappointing that unlike the TES, the rest of us seem unable to get hold of the full details of the survey. Without this a considered response is impossible. Would the TES please provide a link?

    They don't have any sound research or evidence to rest this assertion on,
    Bring your own Ofsted is disruptive to schools as well.

    If a school has a sensible BYOT policy, good CPD, promotes behaviour for online learning, takes e-learning safety seriously and embeds good pedagogy into the SOWs then tablets can be utterly fantastic in promoting progress in a whole range of skills and areas in some seriously challenging students let alone regular students.

    If you let students bring their own tablets, mums, Ofsted inspectors or packed lunches and have no rules, planned teaching or procedures in place then yes, this is disruptive to learning. Especially Ofsted inspectors.

    Isn't there a rule against Ofsted writing click bait headlines with no foundation of peer reviewed research behind it? I thought it was an non-political objective QUANGO? (ha ha ha ha.)

    It's Ofsted... isn't that enough for you?

    Ofsted, damaging UK education for nearly 3 decades.

    Never seen any evidence for this either. I understand that Apple have been challened to find any evidence - but couldn't.

    See too many asking for advice along they lines of - we have bought some iPads - what is the best way of using them. A recipe for disaster.
