ICT - students view - c/o Jonathan

Really interesting post by Jonathan regarding UK students view of the use of ICT - under the heading of "Action Research into mixed age teaching groups at a local primary school". Also interesting is the mixed age teaching concept, something we have been talking about here in some detail. It is a bizarre concept, as Professor Stephen Heppell is always saying, that we herd students into like age groups no matter what their ability - the only time in their lives that we do this to people and expect them to all learn at the same time.

Why do we almost always do that - even now and even if it doesn't make a lot of sense. The frequent answer of "that's how it's done" really is not good enough in the 21st century!
