This month, Becta (the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency), has launched a new national campaign about putting technology at the heart of learning. The Campaign, Next Generation Learning is about using technology well to make learning a more exciting, rewarding and successful experience for people of all ages and abilities.
The campaign is supported by a website which has three main topic areas focussing on:
Better results - Creating an education and training system that uses technology better to improve performance.
Better ways to learn - How technology can change the way you learn; giving you more control over what, when, where and how you do it.
Better for business - Ideas for improving your organisation by making better use of technology.
The site has checklists for learners, practitioners and businesses, which provide helpful hints on how to utilise technology. You’ll also find advice, tips and resources to help you get the most out of technology.
