Just another tool?
Created to explore ideas and thinking for my breakout at the Learning at School (2006) conference.

I had been hearing this phrase referred to, more often as a statement of fact...ICT is "just another tool".

I had been wondering what would happen if we explored this statement as a question and considered the actions of the teacher... or the student, and how these actions might impact on the concept of ICTs as "just another tool".

I used the analogy of a ukulele in the hands of the musician....see slideshow on the right.
