I have been thinking about how we might create a virtual school...

Interestingly, there was an article in the Times Educational Supplement last week about a science teacher who had condensed her terms work into a six minute powerpoint presentation which could be available to her students on-line. What if across Leeds we did this for every course and programme and focused staff time on coaching and mentoring and guidance. Students would merely have to access priogrammes and we could monitor their access and support them as required. Apple would add to this a series of videocasts and podcasts featuring the best scientists and historians and geographers and artists from across the world to ensure that all the pathways and programmes were rigorous, challenging and stimulating.

OK why not?
