    • 7. ICT Test Bed
      • The project undertook work on ICT implementation in three ICT Test Bed areas of social disadvantage. Two of these were within inner cities and one was in a rural area. The 28 ICT Test Bed Schools and departments in three colleges had access to high levels of ICT hardware and appropriate software, as well as support to make the most effective use of this investment. ICT Test Bed work focused on using ICT to:
      • Raise standards and performance, especially in the areas of school and college improvement, student attainment and raising the quality of teaching and learning
      • Enable more effective leadership and management in schools and colleges
      • Help teachers to concentrate their time on their core task of teaching
      • Enable more effective collaboration between schools and with their local colleges
      • Improve the links between schools, homes and the community
