ICT in Schools

There's new research out, from the Scottish Executive Education Department, which makes fascinating reading (well, to me anyway).

Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) is a broad term covering hardware (computers, scanners, digital cameras, handheld computers, etc), software and technologies such as videoconferencing and the Internet. There's lots more of it in schools, but what difference does that make? This research gives us a much clearer picture of what is going on.

"The Impact of ICT Initiatives in Scottish Schools: Phase 3, Final report" is the full length report

but luckily there's also a short summary of the findings in "Insight 20: The Impact of ICT Initiatives in Scottish Schools".
