Initatives in ICT in the last 10 years?

    Hi,
    I am about to write a paper for my PGCE about the spread of ICT in the
    primary school and its impact in nuturing/hindering creativity in the
    core subjects and I have hit a bit of a roadblock.
    Despite
    scouring the DFES sites I can not find a single initative relating to
    the use of ICT in primary schools in the last 10 years. All I can find
    is the the ICT across the curriculum (2003) push in Key Stage 3
    (Secondary)
    Any ideas or know any policies that may be helpful?

  3. Not sure if this will help, but there's an Ofsted report on The Importance of ICT which includes primary schools.
    It covers the impact on other subjects, and I think it references a few policies.
     
  4. Unfortunately there haven't really been many - our industry lags behind all others in terms of ICT. What has tended to happen in recent years is drives from below within schools - schools buying laptops, virtual learning environments etc. Initiatives from below rather than above you might say.
