Teaching ICT or using ICT

One of the things that is becoming apparent to me by going to a few conference on Blended Learning is that there are (at least) two camps in the dialogue. Those who are interested in the technology and exploring all its possibilities and those who are interested in the learning and want to use and abuse the technology for that purpose. More interested in how the learning works than in whether it is the best use of the particular technology.

It is interesting to see Ewan talking in these terms in the School sector. In this article he argues that we should stop teaching ICT and start using it in our teaching - seems like another argument for Blended Learning with the emphasis on the learning.
