Ep 6: Laurie and Malcolm

Laurie O’Donnell and Matthew talk about the Scottish Learning Festival, e-readers in classrooms, intranets trending to the cloud and the Kindle fire!

 

First there is a discussion about the trend to the cloud and what it might mean for school and education authority intranets.

 

We chat about libraries and a government study into the further extension of ebook lending in UK libraries:

Finally we consider the Amazon Kindle Fire which has just been announced even though the States have had them for a year or more. Could this be the affordable tablet model for schools? International man of mystery Laurie thought for a while and proclaimed “maybe”. You heard it here first.
