Should computers replace pen and paper in all exams?
An education expert is calling for all exams to be taken on a computer. Is this a good idea?
Isabel Nisbet, outgoing chief of the Ofqual qualifications watchdog, argues that GCSEs and A-levels will become "invalid" for digitally native pupils if writing materials are retained - she believes that children in the future should be tested in the way they learn.
But Dr Sheila Lawlor, director of think-tank Politeia, says this would create practical problems, and believes allowing children to write and analyse information in an accessible way teaches them how to think.
How do you think pupils should take their exams? Has the use of pen and paper had its day? Would computer security and speed issues make it difficult for computer-based exams?
