It was inevitable is that
all schools would eventually have web access. It is also inevitable that
all schools will eventually have broadband access, allowing individual
e-mail accounts for staff and students, high quality video-conferencing
and other ICT resources that industry now take for granted.
What is not inevitable is
that these resources will become fully integrated into the curriculum
and that a level of comfort with the technology will be developed by teachers
and students alike. Only if this happens will ICT become a resource to
enhance rather than impede learning. This very issue has been addressed
by the Classroom of the Future project since its inception.
