Support for and Management of Information Technology in Schools.
This paper addresses the role of information technology (IT) in the new national curriculum for England and Wales. The role of IT is framed by a discussion of translating policy into practice. To this end, four broad issues are addressed: assessment, progression, resources, and staff development. Improving teacher support to facilitate the effective use of IT across the curriculum, including the promotion of independent learning is the primary purpose of effective management of IT in the schools. The report concludes that the issues raised are part of the national development program to support classroom practices directly and to help in the development and implementation of whole-school IT policies and coherent patterns of local support.
