Top ICT Money Saving Tips

1,005 views

Published on

The latest version of this presentation, from July 2010, which looks at the ways that ICT can contribute to cost savings in schools - some ideas are related to saving money on ICT expenditure, and others are how ICT can help reduce the cost of other services in school - eg reducing energy bills, supply teacher costs and reducing carbon emissions from schools etc.
Many of the examples are supported by case studies from schools who have made savings.
