“I'm not surprised to read …that most of the activities involving broadband are teacher-led (or what I call the Dick Turpin style of teaching - stand and deliver) because we're not encouraging this symmetry, with pupils creating content and using broadband to share it with others.
There needs to be this peer-to-peer type of learning and this why broadband hasn't yet delivered the properly personalised curriculum. Sadly, today, broadband is about delivery and not about what it truly should be: participation.”

Lead-ers at the pointy end
Sharp ones- take up from early adopters
Wood – Would do it with the right support from the leaders
The dead wood –hard to get results with these
The eraser– can undo most of the work of the others given half a chance
Chewed up- still active but happy for others to lead
Hanger-on: looks like part of the act, but does nothing
And in a Web2.0 world…
eg blogs and podcasts just a way of disseminating class tasks and notes, del.icio.us collections used only to convey websites, Wikipedia just as a “reference” tool
Students creating significant content, feedback and interaction can be a challenge
Smile at them, they will grow out of it
Court + child detention centre
Execute them, and their parents
Gaol term, hard labour
Social services intervention
Adult gaol term
The Overton Window
Raise public discussion about these ideas
talk about extremes to shift the average person’s ideas
We have a professional obligation to discuss and analyse somewhat extreme ideas to shift the popular view. Nobody else will!
Web 2.0 (and 3.D) are such ideas

Some online tool becomes available freely
Studentsuse it at home and school
Some educators may (validly or otherwise) see this tool as a threat. They respond by restricting, renouncing or simply banning it.
Tool becomes widespread in wider community (Gladwell’s Tipping Point reached?). Student use or expectation reaches critical mass, education sees its potential and the need to provide it securely
Education responds with a secure and manageable replacement
And everyone breathes a sigh of relief….

Secret filming teacher defended
Mrs Mason denies professional misconduct and failing to promote the education and welfare of students.
It would be a "travesty of justice" to discipline a supply teacher who secretly filmed her pupils for a documentary, a tribunal has heard.
Mrs Mason, of north London, is accused of professional misconduct for filming staff and students without consent.
She denies misconduct, saying she wanted to expose "classroom chaos".
