I've hear from a couple of unreliable sources that New Zealand has decided not to use VLEs in primary and secondary phases of education - and that Australia is coming to the same conclusion. Anyone out there actually /know/ if that's teh case?
If you mean they are not "mandating" it like I believe is the case in the UK, then it sounds like they may actually be using some logic in their decision making process.
Thanks for that - looks like it might be worth an article in the UK education press if I convince anyone. If anyone has specific sources I could cite that would help, but you've all given me a start.
