Do you remember when podcasting was the ‘future of education’? Or e-learning repositories? Do you know what scalable vector graphics were?
If so then (a) you’re older than you look and (b) you’ve already lived through several generations of the ‘e-learning revolution’. And what you may have noticed in all that activity is the number of false starts and the slow emerging of the loosening of the ties, and a greater sense of independence in learning. Whether that continues is, of course, another matter. Even after 10 years, the digital revolution in the classroom (and beyond) remains in its infancy, there’s plenty of twists and turns yet.
