I went to a school meeting last night where where there was a presentation on “Virtual Learning Environment” Collaboration to you and I
The teacher doing the talk was saying how kids use IT, is very different to adults
20% of his Year9 class has had a online chat with someone in a different countrty this week
20% had posted to youtube this year
80 % had watched a youtube this week
Then he said, i want make a comparision
