  7. 7. Policy Framework
  8. 8. Choice and Voice <ul><li>The DfES is proud of the way it has placed choice and voice at the heart of its policy making and service delivery. The recently published ‘Five Year Strategy for Children and Learners’ sets out the Department’s plans to radically reshape the system for delivering education and children’s services so that its central characteristic will be personalisation – a system that fits the individual rather than the individual fitting the system. </li></ul><ul><li>Evidence to public administration select committee inquiry into choice, voice and public services, 2004 </li></ul>
  9. 9. The e-strategy <ul><li>Ensure integrated personal support for children and learners </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a collaborative approach to personalised learning activities </li></ul><ul><li>Schools … will want to develop eventually an e-portfolio where learners can store their work, record their achievements, and access personal course timetables, digital resources relevant to their own study, and links to other learners </li></ul>
  10. 10. The personal online space <ul><li>“In the future it will be more than simply a storage place - a digital space that is personalised, that remembers what the learner is interested in and suggests relevant web sites, or alerts them to courses and learning opportunities that fit their needs.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>Ruth Kelly's introduction to Harnessing Technology, 2005 </li></ul>
  11. 11. Schools white paper <ul><li>Personalisation … means a tailored education for every child and young person </li></ul><ul><li>It means every pupil being able to extend their learning and develop their interests and aptitudes </li></ul><ul><li>Good schools already use ICT … to set and mark work online … and to link the classroom and home </li></ul><ul><li>By 2008 all schools will be able to offer access to e-learning resources both in and out of school. We will encourage all schools … to make available a personal online space to every pupil </li></ul>
  12. 12. 2020 Vision <ul><li>Collaborative relationships … which develop pupils’ skills of working independently and in groups </li></ul><ul><li>Information is not always available to those who could draw on it to improve learning </li></ul><ul><li>Blurring the distinction between informal and formal learning – giving children the ability to choose what they learn and when they learn it </li></ul><ul><li>It will be important that decisions on the use of the new technologies be taken in the context of a clear vision for personalising learning </li></ul>

It is important that schools choose the ICT equipment that is most appropriate to the needs of the different pupils and is most effective in supporting the different intended outcomes, including equipment which may be needed for the individual pupils to access their computer.” </li></ul>
  16. 16. Building Schools for the Future <ul><li>Should we be? </li></ul><ul><li>“ To help all children achieve their full potential by supporting every school in England to become a centre of excellence in the use of ICT for teaching and learning and for whole-school development.”  </li></ul><ul><li>“ ICT provision is essential to develop differentiated, personalised approaches to learning and the aim for BSF schools should therefore be to have sufficient and suitable equipment to allow individual access.” </li></ul><ul><li>Efficient use and seamless transfer of data </li></ul><ul><li>Media rich learning resources </li></ul>
  17. 17. BSF continued <ul><li>“ ICT provision should be area-base” </li></ul><ul><li>“ The ICT Provision is intended to be procured using conventional capital for the installation and revenue funding from schools’ delegated budgets for the ongoing support.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ It should enable teaching staff to use digital lesson preparation and delivery, have access to administration and management information systems and provide learners/parents/carers access to personalised learning portfolios.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ A full ICT support environment that includes training, security, help desk support and other related services. The hosting of learning environments in a controlled and secure environment should also be provided. </li></ul><ul><li>Bidders should... propose technology that is mainstream and proven </li></ul><ul><li>Fundamentals, LA Enhancements, School Enhancements </li></ul><ul><li>Local Choice Fund (from an agreed catalogue, and to include furniture) </li></ul>
