Dylan Wiliam

I’ve been told that computers are about to revolutionize our classrooms for the last 30 years. And I’m still waiting.

The internet can still be fun

Every time I go to cut my RSS-feed from the Guardian's technology blogs, then they rake up stuff like The David Cameron anecdote generator. Interestingly enough, the generator itself is blocked at my workplace. I'm going to try not to think too hard about what damage the county authorities believe this could be doing to the next generation of citizens.

I also learned from the Guardian about Gamestation's changing their terms and conditions to include ownership of their customers' souls. It's not boring out there yet.

Does God exist?

…a post title a bit more in keeping with the blog’s title, perhaps. This blog is about belief, in the end, but it’s not always so obvious.

A little while back I was invited to the library at lunch to debate the existence of God. Amazing that at least 70 pupils showed up in their lunch break to hear such a debate. Here’s a answer to those who wonder if today’s youth are totally shallow.

Not quite satisfied with the debate. We should have agreed on more in advance, as my opponent’s approach was almost poetic and rather hard to attack. We only got going once the audience got involved, so we should have started with questions more quickly.
