    Have I Got Old News For You!

    I typed in ICT in the BBC seach box on the education pages and came up with these great snippets from days gone by....

    A significant proportion of our teachers lack an appropriate capability for ICT use. We have not ensured that they themselves are capable users of ICT... it underlines the need for continuous investment in our teachers' capabilities as new technology emerges

    Teacher training on computers 'poor'

    This was a big issue in the roadshows - especially for primary schools, where the support role typically falls to an already hard-pressed ICT co-ordinator.

    Buying in specialists is expensive.

    Kate Griffin, head of Greenford High School, a large comprehensive in west London, said the problem was already acute.

    "The sort of people who have the skills we need are very difficult to come by. I had to advertise four times to get any technical support at all," she said at one of the roadshows.

    "They can earn so much more elsewhere."
    Ahhh. Happy days.
