The Palm Project: research into autonomous learning

IT in the National Curriculum

British PCs for the school office


In this issue:

We report on a major project which is looking into teh way children learn with comptuers, in particular how they learn autonomously.  As one of the teachers involved says, she is no longer content to sue computers without knowing what effect they are having on her pupils' learning.  This research should be of vital concern to everyone.

There is also a piece on how IT fits into the National Curriculum, both as a component of technology and across the broader spectrum of subject areas.  It includes some useful advice on integration and implementation strategies.

Thinking of buying a PC for your school office to help you cope with the burden of LMS?  Read our review of three British born and bred PCs first.  You'll also be interested to read about Cornwall's plans for LMS and if you want to win your school a computer, check out our competition.
