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.
