The British Educational Communications and Technology Agency (Becta) will reduce the number of online services and brands it provides for schools in response to the Department for Education and Skills five-year strategy and e-Strategy, 'Harnessing Technology'.
Over the coming months some changes would be seen in Becta's online presence. This includes the news, features and school website directory. The aim is to work towards a position where teachers should be able to work from any Internet access point at any time, linked to the tools and learning services they need in order to plan, prepare, manage and follow up learning experiences for their students. The site provides online curriculum, which features multimedia resources to support teaching and learning. This site is an example of the Government's ongoing commitment to ICT and the drive to transform teaching and learning in schools.
