‘In a project-based learning environment, the need for technology should vary widely among both teacher and student learners. Why not frame a classroom around a kit of enabling devices, designing an ecosystem to support the needs of groups and individuals?’

This quote comes from an excellent piece by the always-interesting Rodd Lucier, who blogs about technology in the classroom as The Clever Sheep.

Lucier calls his vision a ‘learning commons’, which he proposes as an alternative to ‘one laptop per child‘ (though Lucier’s writing about the developed world – I’d be interested in what he thinks of ‘one laptop per child’ within the developing world).
