I've been thinking about where ICT in the classroom is headed, the speed at which technology is entering classrooms and the speed at which teachers are keeping up.
The equation doesn't balance.
Laptops, PDA, iPods, Smart Boards... all connected with WiFi networks. So there's your "21st century classroom"
Now, mix in some tweens, teens and sugar + a teacher with very little training & PD.
I keep hearing this term, "clasroom management". I'm sorry -- it's got nothing to do with network management and remote desktop support fellas. That's a given and it should be built into the device's OS.
Focus on the activities and teacher needs for once and you begin to realize the "classroom OS" is missing (and I don't mean OS X or Windows).
Sometimes it seems like vendors have thrown teachers into a Porche 911 with no steering wheel and a big red heavy brick on the gas peddal
