What is your opinion on the Dep of Basic Education decision to  REQUIRE use of MS Office and DELPHI as the vehicles for CAT and IT learning, despite a prior decision to use open source. Derek Keat's blog discusses this issue:

Good morning! Looking forward to the resources shared, discussions and connections that will happen over the course of today!

What are the issues you would like to discuss around managing technology in Education? One things I am trying to get my head around is the future role of institutions in terms of providing technology and infrastructure...do you think the future is BYOD? and the institution will just provide support and a stable wireless network? will that work for us in contexts where not all students can afford acquiring their own devices? should we require all students to bring an internet enabled device to class to be able to teach, as Johannes Cronje says in his see presentation?  Is this fair on our students? Or absolutely necessary for them not to be left behind?

some interesting resources on this debate:
