Date: 22 October 2011

Don has recently completed a study looking at uses of digital resources in primary schools. The report focused on ways that digital resources enhance teaching and learning as well as supporting management and cost effectiveness. The report was highlighted in the BBC News article Digital textbooks open a new chapter, and was featured in articles in the Borneo News, Education Executive, Teaching Time, Merlin John On-Line and bee-it.
