What is your advice about? Screens in classrooms
1: Tim Leary said about LSD: tune in, turn on, drop out. On screens in classrooms I say: turn off, tune in to the teaching and conversations, drop your devices…
2: If a school leader offers you a set of iPads look them politely in the eye and refuse them. Do not waver.
3: If you have an IWB in your classroom unplug it and hide the cables. If you are offered IWB training politely and firmly refuse.
4: If you get in trouble for your Luddism tune in to social media and blogs and expose the witch hunters for their blind obedience to the machine. Enjoy the paradox.
5: Do not be against screens but question their ubiquity. School is to open children’s eyes, not their iPads.
