What some Webheads say:

                        but teachers who use computers will –inevitably-

                         replace teachers who do not”.  Claire Bradin

                                                   (Cited by Elizabeth Hanson-Smith (Technology in the Classroom, 1997).

                                                        

 

“Teacher development is an exciting thing nowadays with     unprecedented possibilities. Arnold Mühren

                                                                                                        (personal communication)
