  • DTI Micros in Schools SchemeThe Departments of Trade and Industry ran the Micros in Schools Scheme from June 1 1981 to 1984, initially offering first secondary then primary schools 50% funding on purchases of microcomputers to stimulate both education and industry.This was under the Thatcher government, but it was Ken Clarke who was credited with driving it forward
  • Alongside this, the National Grid for Learning in its first phase (1998-99) provided £100 million for hardware, software and Internet connectivity for 8,000 schools; between 1998 and 2002, £657 million of grant funding was made available to schools in England through the Standards Fund to help develop provision (infrastructure, services and content). a further £710 million of expenditure was allocated between 2002 and 2004
  • In 1998 there was funding of £23 million givento supply 10,000 teachers and heads with a laptop. They were targeted for use with Integrated Learning Systems (ILS) which offered an individualised route through material very often in the context of numeracy and literacy.
