OECD Report Questions the Value of Technology in Schools.
Few weeks ago the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has published a report entitled “Students, Computers and Learning: Making the connection". The findings of this research have been interpreted in different ways by experts and this has opened a wide debate on whether the use of technology in classroom can be beneficial or not.

For sure, technology has changed dramatically the way that we teach and learn but is not the recipe for learning success. The presence of technology alone no matter how advanced it is it does not mean that will bring the big “change”.
