Is technology 'transforming schools'?


Today's guest editor this morning, Melinda Gates, is a passionate advocate of investment in technical innovation for school pupils, and asked the Today programme to report on how it can help in schools with a high proportion of disadvantaged pupils.

The BBC's technology correspondent, Rory Cellan Jones, examines the role of technology in enhancing the quality of teaching in schools.

"If technology is not simple and reliable we will not use it," one head teacher explained.

An academy principal explained that the use of technology starts with good teaching: "Great teachers use technology to do even greater things... they use the technology as a bridge."
