This talk is an absolute gem. In 15 minutes Adam delivers a great talk at speed about the state of technology in education.
It is funny, informative, hard-hitting and perceptive and the sort of talk that administrators, teachers and politicians should be watching.
I especially liked his comments on the use of mobile technology in schools. I have been going on about this myself for quite a while yet Adam is able to make the argument forcefully and well in just a few minutes.
This is truly a talk to enjoy and would have graced any of the similarly timed “TED” talks (maybe they will be looking at it for future reference).
Can I also take this opportunity to once again recommend Adam’s excellent website called “EduTecher” which has some excellent videos and reviews of many great free and downloadable programs.
