Commissioned by BESA (British Educational Suppliers Association) as part of its 75th anniversary, the policy commission is the result of contributions from educators and leaders in schools and colleges, local authority advisers and inspectors, educational suppliers, publishers, industry consultants and others involved within education. As far as IT is concerned, former education minister Clarke said, 'Responses to the commission were positive about the need for technology in schools.' However, interoperability of hardware and software was seen as key.

The report concludes, 'Technology, whether used in an institution or at home, must play a full and seamless part in supporting personalised learning and the gathering of relevant assessment data.'
