CINZS 2012, Vol 24, No 1

Kia ora, welcome to Computers in New Zealand Schools: Learning, Teaching, Technology, 24 (1).

Computers in New Zealand Schools has been reporting on the use of computers and other forms of information and communication technologies (ICT) for over two decades. In that time, articles have identified the power of ICT to enhance and even transform the learning and teaching occurring in our schools. However, “As Diana Laurillard (2008, p. 1) observes wryly, ‘education is on the brink of being transformed through learning technologies; however, it has been on that brink for some decades now’" (Selwyn, 2010, p.66).

The articles and columns in this issue of CINZS all report on ways that ICT can, and in some cases should, be transforming education in New Zealand.
