ILT Champs List What do you see coming over the horizon? IT and ILT strategy = In 5 years How do we see the terrain? Will VLEs have withered away? Will online resources mean the end of traditional library provision? Will ILT be taken-for-granted aspect of teaching?
Mapping the Landscape What did you see in 2000? Lots of ... ‘We don’t do Technology!’ E-Learningwas not really part of the lexicon (unless distant/remote learning?) “Will VLEs take off?” ILT = support pracititionersin the classroom Twitter stories please? #FOTE10
