Over coffee with an ex-colleague who works in IT, we chat about technology in schools. He mentions reading some of my blog posts and I’m suddenly aware that I rarely write about technology any more.
When I started this blog, I had a tag for tech, a tag for web 2.0 tools and a tag for 21st century learning.
Now it’s a given….
