The Adam Smith Institute This site has some interesting downloadable publications on educational issues. My attention was drawn in particular to Wired to Learn (2002) by Tom McMullan, which is described as follows: "The government wants to create the 'school of the future' with ICT-based learning in new-look buildings and at home. But existing government policy stands in the way of this vision. Teacher and ICT expert Tom McMullan identifies the blockages: too much focus on numbers rather than sustainability, low teacher confidence, dismal connectivity, and the lack of realisation that content, and not hardware, is what it's all about."
