  • Has The Internet Changed Education Forever

    By Ryan Crawley, 24 Jan 2020

    By Alan Peters, 24 Jan 2020

    Connected learning is cross curricular work with all the bad bits taken out.  Christmas Dinner without the Brussel sprouts; Bake Off without Paul Hollywood (I’ll never forgive him for not giving the title to Kim Joy); Still Open All Hours without the script.  You get the idea. Now, if...
