Here is an online magazine devoted to e-learning http://elearnmag.org/ Lots of interest here including a recent study in the Republic of Cyprus on why teachers don’t use the technology that is available. High up on the reasons is the pressure of time and of existing syllabus which doesn’t allow teachers the time or scope to take full advantage of IT in their classrooms. The full article is here: http://elearnmag.org/subpage.cfm?section=case_studies&article=46-1 Does anybody have opinions on how this compares to Spain?
Another link of interest on this site is this to 30 Web tools for developing writing skills: http://elearnmag.org/subpage.cfm?section=best_practices&article=67-1
And finally some thoughts on outsourcing: http://blog.acm.org/elearn/2010/04/is_this_a_joke_or_a_brilliant.html
Maybe, as teachers, if we started outsourcing more we would have more time to use technology more often and to better effect? Let’s wait and see what happens in Cyprus?
