3 The HE Context “Harnessing Technology” DfES Priorities  An integrated online information service for all citizens  Integrated online personal support for children and learners  A collaborative approach to personalised learning activities  A good quality ICT training and support package for practitioners  A leadership and development package for organisational capability in ICT  A common digital infrastructure to support transformation and reform.

4 The HE Context “Harnessing Technology” Technology offers more than access to information… E-learning allows a new relationship with learners to develop. It takes them beyond the confines of the traditional classroom, extending collaboration…. Encourage every institution to offer a personal online learning space to store coursework, course resources, results, and achievements…for each learner, so that education organisations can support an individual’s progression more effectively. Together, these facilities will become an electronic portfolio, making it simpler for learners to build their record of achievement throughout their lifelong learning. Technology also allows a new relationship between education and employers.
