Log on to learn
Although I agree with Gabriel Millar's assertion that children should not be staring at screens all day (Letters, June 5), I cannot help but think he has missed the point of some of the most exciting ICT use, especially lower down in schools.
ICT is not just about computers. I have seen examples of very young children doing fantastic work with digital cameras and portable audio recording equipment without a computer in sight. Such tools carry none of the health implications he cites and, arguably, provide a much more beneficial learning experience than merely sitting young children in front of a website.
