Back in year 2000 – a prediction…

“the most probable future use of CBL (is that) it has great potential as an aid in future nursing education, with regard to:

(1) meeting students’ educational requirements more effectively;

(2) achieving these requirements more efficiently;

(3) providing students who have differing learning styles with alternative representations of knowledge, and with methods of assimilating that knowledge;

(4) providing nurses with the opportunity to develop skills and confidence in the use of CBL and computers in general; and

(5) nurturing a desireto use such resources in their future careers.”

Michael J. Lewis, Rebecca Davies, David Jenkins and Michael I. Tait (2002) A review of evaluative studies of computer-based learning in nursing education. Nurse Education Today. Volume 21, Issue 1, January 2001, Pages 26-37

Martin Bean, VC of the Open University .... digital divide is no longer about haves and have nots in terms of access to IT and ownership of devices....

"In my mind now the digital divide is much more about those that actually understand how to use and apply technology in their lives and their work as a necessity, rather than simply getting access to the technology...”
