    Apparently Cameron has just said that the idea that taxpayers paying or university is “for the birds”. That’s the trouble with that man – too flippant by half.

    Are the humanities about to disappear from our universities? The question is absurd. It would be like asking whether alcohol is about to disappear from pubs, or egoism from Hollywood. Just as there cannot be a pub without alcohol, so there cannot be a university without the humanities. If history, philosophy and so on vanish from academic life, what they leave in their wake may be a technical training facility or corporate research institute. But it will not be a university in the classical sense of the term, and it would be deceptive to call it one.

    Today’s Guardian Link, its special supplement given over to educational technology, has my lastest report on the growing number of UK schools and universities relying on Google to manage their IT needs. I talk to several schools in the UK who are already using Google to manage their staff and pupil email accounts, as well as their internal communications and other software. Google is providing its Google Apps for free to educational establishments and its probably coming to a school near you very soon.
