History and ict

  • “The most enthusiastic proponents of computers in recent years have been politicians and those selling new technology to schools.”

    (Haydn, 2003)

  • “From Kenneth Bakers’ commitment to provide a computer for every school in the 1980’s to Tony Blair’s pledge to connect all schools to the Internet, it is difficult to find examples of politicians expressing reservations about the value of computers in education.”

    (Haydn, 2003)

  • “It can be salutary for teachers to look at all the resources which they have acquired, and think about what percentage of them have been fully explored and used. Given the pressures on teachers time, it is easy to think that in building up a pile of resources we are making progress, but most resources require an investment of time and thought to deploy most resources carefully.”

    (Haydn, 2003)

  • “The drastic increase in the amount of historical information available to pupils demands different skills of them. Sifting and selecting, organising and classifying, prioritising and discarding, synthesising and marshalling information are high – order skills compared to simply accumulating information, and they are skills which will be more useful to them in life after school.”

    (Haydn, 2003)

  • “We must use the Internet. There is no way out. The Internet is not a passing trend. Our young people will use it in their daily lives, no matter what they choose to do with them. And on the Internet, they will continue to confront interpretations and representations of history. All adults, no matter what they do with their lives, need to be able to see how and why the historical interpretations that bombard them were constructed, otherwise, they are prey to propaganda and manipulation, not to mention cynicism or a lack of regard for the truth.”

    (Haydn, 2003)

History and ict

  • “At school, history is often perceived as the most authoritarian of subjects (‘learn the three causes of the repeal of the Corn Laws’). The sixth former, flushed with success in advanced level history discovers at university a mind – blowing truth: historians disagree with one another.”

    (McAleavy, 2002)
