What can 12 year olds do with Google Sketchup
This, that's what they can do. Ian in Islay is clearly a great teacher but has exceptional talent as an ICT coordinator (or whatever his equivalent is in his school), working to get the best in terms of hardware, software, open source, training and pedagogy into and out of his high school (population just over 250).
This is the kind of activity that I'd like to see more schools not just doing, but, as Ian has done, sharing on the web. It sets the benchmark high, and these kids deserve every bit of positivity you can leave them before they head off on holiday this Friday!
