Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) have facilitated significant innovation in teaching in the recent past.  Yet, as educators, our imagination of what is possible reaches even beyond what has been achieved.  Many of our ideas for innovation include digitising existing models of teaching to make them more effective, or more accessible or even cheaper.  However, they also include new models of learning that have only become feasible due to the affordances of ICT.  So why are we so slow in making progress to what we imagine is possible?  This session will describe ICT based educational innovations that the presenter has worked on and seen elsewhere as well as the barriers inhibiting their implementation.  Participants will then be asked to reflect on the innovations that they would like to see happen, the barriers that are likely to inhibit these innovations and propose possible solutions to overcome these barriers.
