Impact of New Technologies in English Maintained Schools
This BESA report shows that it is likely that there will be significant differences between those emerging technologies that enhance and replace technology (e.g. tablets replacing netbooks) and those technologies that are a new way to teach and learn (e.g. learning platforms), but that do not necessarily replace any existing technology (e.g. learning platforms). In addition, new technologies that replace solutions with a cost-effective alternative (e.g. cloud-computing) are likely to do well, while technologies that enhance, but do so at a higher cost (e.g. large LCD displays replacing IWBs) are more likely to struggle to compete.
