ICT in the 21st Century has an all-encompassing role within the lives of children and adults.
“Harnessing Technology: Transforming learning and children’s services”
Sets out the government plans for taking a strategic approach to the future development of ICT.
“The internet and related technologies are powerful tools, which open up new prospects for communication and collaboration. Education is embracing these new technologies as they bring with them fresh opportunities for both teachers and learners.
To use these technologies effectively requires an awareness of the benefits and risks, the development of new skills, and an understanding of their appropriate and effective use both in and outside of the classroom.”
DfES, eStrategy 2005
