I admit it, I have a bee in my bonnet and have done sinve I moved from the post 16 sector to Hamble College. Especially with that word trust. As a teacher I am seeking more trust, thank goodness I am not the only one banging that drum, as I read Ewan McIntosh’s post…
‘Just look at the lack of control over their technology and it’s not surprise that most teachers have, indeed, a fair distrust for the education Establishment.’
Today, I wrote to our LEA complaining for being filtered so indiscriminately. Should any educator from Hampshire (or any where really) stumble upon this post (unlikely but possible) please let me know how restricted technology / internet access restricts the learning opportunities for your students.
Ironically, our Art teacher is currently running a “barriers” project in his GCSE class and yet the amazing and FREE Piclens can not access Flickr or Google images! Will someone in a position of authority see sense.
