Video of David Puttnam on Educating for the Digital Society

In this talk (in Dublin, Jan 2010)  David Puttnam emphasises the need for the education system to embrace technology and foster digital literacy at an early stage to create the next generation of informed and responsible digital participants. He called on Government to prioritise education spending and provide the resources necessary to meet this challenge. As a resident of County Cork,  Lord Puttnam takes a keen interest in developments in Ireland and he concluded his speech with his observations on the Irish education system.
