    God I would like to answer those if I may.

    Best education resource I would say are the pupils & as for the biggest white elephant - well thats ICT !!
    Too much emphasis is put on ICT in my opinion in schools. A computer will NEVER be able to replace a good teacher.

    There had my 2 pennies worth.

    Here! Here! Bring back the blackboard, that's what I say! Then the teachers'll have a solid eraser to throw at the little darlings. And it makes a good musical instrument to boot (finger nails).

    Surely you mean 'chalkboard' *ducks*

    Serious Question

    Did you have any idea that Edugeek would be so popular when you first dipped your toes in?
    And
    After coming this far, what would you like to see for the forum in the next few years?

    How do you envision eduGeek's expansion internationally?
    Where do you see the eduGeek community in 3.5 years, 7 years, . . . .?
    What function will we play in education, both at the frontline and in terms of (inter)national policy....
