Some Oxfordshire teachers from the Cherwell School reflect on their experience of using the Internet.
"Our biggest challenges were convincing people of the value of the Internet and getting departments to find a place for it in the curriculum."
Myf Powell, Director of Studies
"I liked the issues based approach we used. It surprised me which students became involved......Getting networked Internet access was a real breakthrough."
Andrew Hubbard, Geography teacher
