whose responsibility
Whose responsibility?
  • Whole School
    • In secondary schools this is a Senior Leadership Team responsibility not ICT Subject Leaders.
    • In Primary schools an ICT coordinator with strong support from Head teacher.
    • Should have a teaching and learning focus not administration or network management.
    • However, on the ground consultation and support using e-learning champions are essential.

a word about e portfolios
A word about e-portfolios
  • Not the DiDA e-portfolio
  • The e-portfolio could possibly include:
    • Showcase or Presentation Portfolio
    • Qualification or evidence Portfolio
    • Learning or Development Portfolio
    • Lifelong learning Summary Portfolio
    • Transaction Portfolio
  • Definitely a work in progress
quotes from the dfes
Quotes from the DfES

We will not impose our view of what the technology should provide. We need to listen to people’s views, and ensure that technology meets their needs. In this way, we make the most of what ICT can offer.


However the … functionalities that industry providers must be able to deliver to be included in the framework agreement do not also serve as a list of functions that schools … must purchase in entirety. Schools may choose any combination of functionalities … list[ed] to suit their needs. They might even choose functionalities not currently listed, as part of their need or ‘Statement of Requirements’, that companies from the framework would then be challenged to deliver …

Statement from Chris Stolberg April 2006
