Anyone who knows me will know that I like my technology. Anyone who's ever been in one of my lessons will know that I like to use technology in the classroom. So, you can imagine my trepidation when I started to read this report from the BBC about how the OECD have concluded that use of computers in schools does not necessarily lead to an improvement in results (OECD report available from this link). Have I been wasting my time? Well, the report, when analysed gives a little more depth to the story.
