School reform minister Nick Gibb MP awaits the digital revolution. In the meantime? Use textbooks
Nick Gibb MP was the keynote speaker at the "Delivering Quality in Changing Times" conference last week, organised by the Publishers Association (PA) and the British Educational Resources Association (Besa). But those who had paid to attend were astonished to read his speech splashed across the media before they even arrived at the venue.
Headlines like “Schools told: reintroduce traditional textbooks in lessons” and “Schools need textbooks not worksheets” trumpeted the minister's agenda – transforming learning with textbooks.
