Concerns about the education of ‘BOYS’ embrace both their academic performance and their social experiences of school
  • continuing traditional gendered patterns of subject selection
  • disruptive and aggressive behaviours reflected in the over-representation of boys in school discipline statistics
  • continuing high levels of bullying and harassment by boys, of both girls and boys
  • under-achievement of certain groups of boys
  • over-representation of boys in learning support programs
  • under-representation in leadership roles
  • increasing evidence of disengagement from schooling
  • an anti-learning youth culture
  • increasing rates of suicide
  • substance abuse
  • extreme risk-taking behaviours amongst boys and girls.

Take a look at these photos we took and then decide if we were ‘lucky’ when we won this free holiday!

Okay… so we didn’t take this picture - we got it from the internet.

  • As a catalyst to change in classroom practice, learning technology can help educators promote active and participatory student learning. But the key to success isn’t the computers, probeware, graphing calculators or access to networks and the Internet. It is liberated educators, whose understanding and creative use of technology can help them to achieve undreamed-of levels of excellence for themselves and their students. (2)
