Do we buy technology in schools without questioning why?
How many times have you been amazed by a piece of technology? If you're like me, then quite often! I love technology, I love the way it has changed the way I work, how it has inspired me and how it has enabled me to publish things I never thought possible 10 years ago.

The technology has always been there, they've never been in a classroom without an interactive whiteboard, laptops, iPads or a projector whirring away in the background. But how much of this technology has been used to improve their learning outcomes?
Using technology in the classroom needs a complete change in mindset and rethink of your approach to children's learning.
