    wow, it has been interesting to read what everyone has been posting.  Our school very much into e-learning, for students and staff. The school runs ultranet which provides a place for the students to have their own portfolios but also a place for where parents can log in and see what their child has been learing including test results.  Each class has a classroom page which they continuely up date with the students current learnings.  However a lot of money has gone into this and the students have to pay a fee to help with the running costs etc.  It has been good to provide students in our area access to laptops, computers that they might not be able to use.  Our school is now looking at BYOD using cell phones etc.  We are also in the middle of looking at students leasing their own ipads from the school - in the long run the students would own these.  

    Sometimes I find it hard to keep up to date with all the new info that is out there and finding new resources for the students to use.  However by having the computers in class the students have another tool which allows them to access more information and I find myself becoming better at lerning new things on my own laptop.

    I still have a lot to learn in this area and will continue to develop myself to learn more.
