Harnessing Technology

A UK e-strategy, Harnessing Technology: Transforming Learning and Children’s Services outlines a goal for the effective use of interactive technologies in education and more personalised learning . This includes the notion that "every student and learner has a personal online learning space" to "store their own course materials and assignments in digital form, and record their achievements." The report extols the virtues of more flexible e-learning resources and the ability of teachers to adapt the curriculum to their learners’ needs
and interests and integrate e-assessment.
The ability of ICT, used imaginatively, would help engage more learners in
the excitement of learning. The report envisages the role of e-learning to blend more easily with life and work, bridging the boundaries between formal and informal learning.
The strategy identifies a number of priorities across school, post compulsory and higher education sectors.
