Technology has revolutionised the way we work and is now set to transform education. Children cannot be effective in tomorrow's world if they are trained in yesterday's skills. Nor should teachers be denied the tools that other professionals take for granted.
Tony Blair, 7 October 1997
Tools as powerful as networked computers are going to transform human communication. This transformation will bring with it both loss and gain. Every revolution in communication has both added to the power and range of what is communicated, and taken away some of the intimacy.
Higher Education is challenged as it has not been in a generation to prove its value and cost-effectiveness. It's a blessedly lucky time for this new toolbox to show up, and I would feel like an idiot if I didn't do everything in my power to use it to its best advantage.
