Or does it?
Well the picture is mixed. BECTA say that there is clear evidence of gains when ICT is used effectively (the report says one of the reasons for the greater gains in primary schools may be that there was more scope for flexibility in the curriculum).
BECTA seem to be saying that OFSTED frequently don’t pick up on good ICT and a bit of a spat seems to be on the cards here.
Whatever the report findings…. I’ll be everyone would want to be one of the testbed schools in the next round ….. and that just about tells it’s own story
