Learning and Teaching Using ICT Conferences Summer 2004
ICTIN SCHOOLS-IMPACT OF GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES The combined impact of government initiatives for ICT in schools has been significant. The outcomes of the initiatives are more evident in improvements in pupils’ achievements in ICT capability than in their application of this learning in other subjects. The gap between the best and worst ICT provision is unacceptably wide and increasing. The training programme funded by NOF continued to disappoint in relation to its stated intentions, although it stimulated higher levels of ICT competence amongst staff.
ICTIN SCHOOLS-IMPACT OF GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES Where schools provided their own training for staff, sometimes with the help of external agents, it was generally more effective than the NOF funded training. The level of technical support varies widely between schools. The government’s initial target of connecting 20% of schools to Broadband by August 2002 was met by the Regional Broadband Consortia. There has been continuing improvement in the quality and extent of support for ICT by LEAs.

Workable plans for sustaining and improving ICT resources Sufficient resources to ensure easy access for all pupils and teachers A wide range of resources ensures inclusion for all learners Appropriate resource allocation to ensure sustainable development Capacity to introduce new ICT innovations
A wide range of diverse technologies are available There is sufficient access to ICT to accommodate all needs Effective use is made of all resources Availability, access and technical support Access to ICT is available to all pupils when required Maintenance is provided as and when required Technical support is available for all staff when required
All pupils develop a wide range of ICT knowledge skills and understanding Pupils are able to display their high levels of ICT capability – high challenge tasks Teachers are aware of pupils ICT capability High levels of ICT capability are built on by teachers Pupils/students with high ICT capability Pupils show sensible use in the way they select appropriate ICT resources Pupils are autonomous users of ICT
