Inside Scottish Education II

Following on from my last post, my final assertion about computer numbers leads to the idea of radically altering the school day. How about a five period day, four in front of a teacher and one in front of a computer?

The period with computer access is there to allow students to do research, to be creative, to write creatively, to collaborate, to work in teams, to undertake projects etc., all good Curriculum for Excellence type things.

Stephen Heppell has many things to say on alternative classrooms, which I will not attempt to summarise here.
