"At an ICT Subject Leaders conference I had the chance to listen to Craig Wilkie who speaks passionately about Transformation in Education. I really valued his honesty, and almost his vulnerability, in promoting this thinking in schools (Transformation sounds like a big deal, and a scary concept!) However, as his presentation went on, I realised that my school and other settings I have worked with are transforming the learning culture."

iPad Mini Rumors – All that Smoke Has Turned Into Fire — iPad Insight

iPad Mini Rumors – All that Smoke Has Turned Into Fire — iPad Insight | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Last week I posted about how iPad Mini rumors had been gaining strength ... Well, this week has only increased that feeling, I’d say it’s now very likely we will see an ‘iPad Mini’ (or whatever Apple ends up calling it) released in the next 6-8 months. The reason I now feel so convinced of this is that two of the best and best-connected Apple writers have weighed in (to varying degrees) on the subject this week, and all the indicators from them are that we will see Apple release a smaller iPad."
