Having read the debate that’s been going on Steve Wheeler’s blog about the future of VLE’s (interesting thread of comments, go read) I thought it would be an interesting exercise to document ICT that has gone the way of all flesh.
…and it would be great to get contributions.
I’m hoping to make this a recurring feature.
What technology is sitting in your cupboards gathering dust? Not just the stuff which is obsolete, but the stuff which had huge amounts of cash and time lavished on it and then came to nothing.
I’m curious to know if there’s a pattern and whether that pattern can inform ICT strategy for learning. It could also be quite funny.
If you want to get involved;
- either stick a comment on this post or tweet me preferrably with a link to a picture.
- Tell us the story behind the gizmos/software etc.
- Give us some of the background to your institution.
If I get enough responses I’ll do an occasional post with the most interesting ones (with links back to contributors).
