Amazingly, some of the issues that occur with integrating new technologies are still a common pain point to this day!

When I moved into the education sector in 2000, I realised the importance of scaling back on abstract theoretical concepts and increasing practical skills. However, it is important to embed the underlying principles into the practical skills so that the learner has transferable skills. That is my constant quest when developing new curricula!
