This report is the result of two linked pieces of work undertaken between March 2001 and May 2002. A mapping study was conducted up to November 2001 and identified the range and type of research studies addressing the impact of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on literacy learning in ages 5 to 16. An in-depth review then addressed one area identified in this mapping – the impact of networked technologies on literacy learning in English 5 to 16. Results from the in-depth review are reported in Chapter 6 and Appendix C. The in-depth review is the first of a number planned by the English Review Group in the field of ICT and literacy. Further in-depth reviews will take place in 2002 and beyond on evidence from experimental studies from 1990 to the present; the moving image and visual literacy; English as an additional language (which includes English as a second language); literature teaching; and word-processing.
