Key advantages of elearning stated include: •Content can be more efﬁciently personalised for individuals and reviewed. •Students can be supported to collaborate, take control of their learning and connect with global audiences. •One-to-one device use seems to correlate with an increase in collaboration and inquiry amongst students. •The teaching paradigm shifts from teacher-centric to a more co- operative mode, focusing increasingly in individuals. •eLearning is intrinsically engaging, and it can reach those previously disengaged. •It makes student participation visible for prompt follow-up.

Researchers have pointed to well-crafted use of technologybeneﬁting, for example: •increased learner effectiveness or performance gains •increased learner efﬁciency •greater learner engagement or satisfaction •more positive student attitudes to learning. BECTA The Impact of Digital Technology
What is your vision for elearning?What are the desired outcomes? Is this supported by research?
What are the trends?What might that look like in your school? Do any align to your vision and beliefs? What are the implications for: Students? Teachers? Principals? BOTs? Resourcing? School design? Learning design?

Strategic Planning Overview. The Strategic Gap Where Too big to jump? Where are we now? do we want to be?(Audit, Analysis, Research) (Vision, Strategic Targets) The Plan is the Bridge Over the Gap The Plan is made up of Projects in Stages over 3 to 5 years The Projects are assessed against Strategic Targets, prioritised and budgeted. The Plan is regularly evaluated and refined. http://ictpd.net firstname.lastname@example.org http://ictpd.net/techplan/
The planning process is vitally important, the planthat results from this process is only one of theoutcomes. http://ictpd.net/techplan/ http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/jasmic/
An effective planning process not only results in a useful plan; it also has positive effects on the school community. http://ictpd.net/techplan/http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/torres21/
A successful plan includes a deﬁned set of educationaloutcomes and a proposed pathway to try to getthere. http://ictpd.net/techplan/ http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/sbh/
A successful plan is not a shopping list or a budget, it involves much more than buying things. http://ictpd.net/techplan/http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/indi/
The attitude of the school community to ICT and the change that can result from the planning process can be more important than an understanding of the ICT itself. http://ictpd.net/techplan/http://www.ﬂickr.com/photos/torres21/
Good plans are developed by consensus and collaboration. http://ictpd.net/techplan/www.ﬂickr.com/photos/massgovernor/
