As an outsider (non-teacher) I am passionate about introducing technology within the classroom, but in the context of student interests and existing school subjects. I'm a strong believer in project-based (ideally student-selected) learning. I also believe that anyone can gain and increased understanding of technology if you make the use of technology relevant to opportunities and issues that are relevant to them. This is true for the youngest children on up through high school and beyond.
