'Scottish Schools Digital Network' is a name that will soon become familiar to everyone working in the Scottish education sector. Think of broadband; not just faster access to Internet sites (although that's handy) but a wide range of new services, applications and resources. All provided in a secure online environment, where the needs of learners, teachers and the education authorities are the focus.
This will take time to achieve, but a major milestone was at the SETT show last week in Glasgow, where the contract was signed for the National Intranet. The SSDN webpages give background to the programme and describe where we are now.
