A former Ofsted chief has written up plans to ditch teaching traditional subjects to primary school kids and instead ween them onto the dirty world of the web, where they are taught to use Twitter, Wikipedia and learn to use spellchecker.

Should kids not be taught how to spell, rather than rely on using a machine? Do children REALLY need to be on Twitter, which is essentially only full of advertising and marketing people, and needy, attention seeking celebrities looking for a bit of free PR anyway?

Twitter rant over.
