Using technology to teach children, not year groups
A typical school classroom is full of children with varying learning aptitudes. Some need a little help to keep up, others race ahead. This is where stage-not-age education comes into its own - allowing children to learn at their own pace, not the age bracket they fall into - and technology is perfect to facilitate this process. Steve Smith, director of learning at Capita IT Services, discusses how technology can provide the freedom for students to plot their own route through education and study at a pace that matches their learning needs.
