Abstract

The UK government has initiated a massive information communication technology (ICT) staff development programme: LoFTTI (Lottery funded Teacher Training Initiative). The aim of this programme is to train all practicing teachers in state schools within the UK so that they can make effective use of ICT as a tool to support their children’s learning. The Learning Schools Programme is one of the consortia that are intending to provide this training. The paper sets out of a brief history of key developments in ICT use in UK schools over the last 25 years and the requirements that have been set down for LoFTTI. The content, structure and support mechanisms for the Learning Schools Programme’s training is then described, with reference to relevant literature.
