"I spend much of my time whittling away at the Wood while being poked by one or two Leaders and Sharp ones. There is, however, a missing component; those that are somewhere between the Ferrules and the Wood; they don't want tried and tested modes being compromised by untrusted methods. This is the action zone in my view, where we can maintain and extend excellence in teaching, learning and assessment. We, as Learning Technology champions, should not let the elegant design of the pencil undermine our impact." - Martin King, Author
