|Abstract: ||Many educators advocate, promote and encourage the dreams of agency, control,
ownership and choice amongst students whilst educational institutions take the
responsibility for provision, equity, access, participation and standards. The
institutions traditionally procure, provide and control the technology for learning
but now students are acquiring their own personal technologies for learning and
institutions are challenged to keep pace. These allow students to produce, store,
transmit and consume information, images and ideas; this potentially realises the
educators’ dream but for institutions is potentially a nightmare, one of loss of
control and loss of the quality, consistency, uniformity and stability that delivered the dreams of equity, access and participation. This paper traces the conflicting dreams and responsibilities.|
