Abstract

It can be argued there is a general perception that computers are inherently educational. This perception has underpinned numerous initiatives intended to make ICT central to teaching and learning within our education system. Despite these initiatives ICT has yet to fulfil its perceived potential. This paper explores the genesis of this view of ICT in the UK before going on to argue the need to reconceptualise the role of ICT in teaching and learning if it is to play a meaningful role in the mainstream of education. This paper is intended to be of interest to all involved in education.
