I am currently running some staff development at a school in Coventry, and having run a session on some of the wonderful things that can be achieved with the Internet in education, I was informed by the attendees that they are limited to 2 hours of internet access per week.
This to me is ridiculous, as most of the ideas that I brought to the session they won’t be able to achieve. The 2 hours limit includes the use in teaching sessions (e.g. the tutor using the Internet with a projector), so this will make it very difficult to embed the use of the Internet into learning. I hope issues like this aren’t occurring when my kids reach school age.
