Schools need to stop ‘frowning’ on pupils using computers to learn and a closer alignment between the use of ICT inside and outside the classroom is needed, Scotland’s Education Secretary Michael Russell has said. In a blog post outlining Scottish government objectives for better use of technologies in learning, Russell warned that some schools had almost become “technology free zones”. He said that outside of school children were exposed to “rich and exciting technologies” that helped them to “learn, play, communicate, collaborate and socialize”.
