Bricks or clicks: the future of education in the digital age

Long before the Web existed hypertext visionaries foresaw a richly inter-linked world that allowed authors and readers alike to move easily between related items of information in a global network: many were excited by the idea that such environments could be used to support learning. Indeed since the very beginning of the digital revolution people have thought about the role of computers in education. The Web has changed so much about the world we live in but we are still asking the same questions about education. Will machines ever replace teachers? Can the Internet ever provide the same learning experience that we provide today in our schools, colleges and universities?  How much time will future learners spend on-line and how much in a physical learning space such as a classroom or a lecture theatre? Should policy makers be focusing on more bricks or more clicks? In this talk we will explore these issues by looking back at the history of computers in education and the evolution of Web-based learning environments in order to consider the future of education in an increasingly on-line world.
