I'm wrestling with just the problems you've listed. ICT is a tool, not the magic bullet we keep looking for. That said, it's also the inevitable tool of the future and we've somehow got to teach students how to use it. We've been working with PLNs lately, and I'm thinking this may be a key. I'd like to develop curriculum that teaches students how to set up Personal Learning Networks, use them to locate information, evaluate and prioritize said info, and then apply it. I would be teaching a process, after all, that should be applicable outside the classroom and into adulthood (I hope). I see this as a way to eventually guide students toward independent learning, when I might be able to stand back and guide and monitor. Assessments would be based on process questions. Any sign of this approach?
