In the summer I spent weeks at a time with groups of young people at an activity centre out in the sticks. At no point in the week did they have signal for their phones, or access to a computer. They all (including the staff) found this varying degrees of difficult.
I love ICT for lots of reasons, and would happily embed it sometimes.
But sometimes taking it out of peoples lives is just as educational, just as eye-opening, just as important as finding new ways to engage with it. Sometimes I think its much more important.
Some of the young people most struggling with the lack of ICT on those weeks admitted that it was good to get away from it for a while.
On that same project I supported someone who really struggled with literacy. I know that making sure they could participate without having to stress about reading and writing meant their talents shone through the barriers. Identifying that barrier and my part in their working around it is one of my greatest achievements.
