Abstract

This document reports the finding of a study to examine evidence that technology provides an essential tool in facilitating change, improving school effectiveness and functioning, and providing evidence of pupil progress. The study analysed questionnaires returned by 181 of the 356 schools removed from 'Special Measures' (SM) or 'Notice to Improve' (NtI) by Ofsted during 2006-7; along with school attainment data from the same schools. 32 key staff in 25 schools which had identified that technology had played a part in their improvement were interviewed and the researchers spoke with pupils in groups in those same schools.
