Essex Junior school of UK is using online learning platform with its own webspace, e-mail, chat and video conferencing tools. < ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The school has been working with the London Grid for Learning (www.lgfl.net) to enhance ICT across the curriculum and encourage collaboration between pupils, staff, governors and parents. London Grid for Learning will provide the safe, secure and high-speed broadband connection to the National Education Network (NEN). The NEN provides schools with access to a consistent set of resources, services and applications and is available through LGfL to every school across London. Teachers are using the learning platform on a daily basis to create new resources from the online content supplied by LGfl, including lesson plans, activities and revision materials. Over 80 schools in the borough and over 100 schools are currently using Ardleigh Green's ICT scheme of work nationally.
