Unbound : Publish Your Book : Crowd-funded books

Unbound : Publish Your Book : Crowd-funded books | What's New on Shambles.NET | Scoop.it

We think authors and readers should decide which books get published. On the Unbound site, authors pitch their ideas directly to you.


If you like what you read, you can pledge your support to help make the book happen. Everyone who supports an author before they reach 100% of the funding target gets their name printed in every edition of that book.


All levels include a digital version and immediate access to the author's shed while they write the book, and supporters of projects that don't reach their target receive a full refund.

ICT in schools 2008-11 [England & Wales]

ICT in schools 2008-11 [England & Wales] | What's New on Shambles.NET | Scoop.it

ICT in schools 2008-11 [England & Wales]


Since the Education Reform Act of 1988, information and communication technology has been compulsory for all pupils from 5 to 16 in maintained schools. This report draws on evidence from the inspection of information and communication technology in primary, secondary and special schools between 2008 and 2011. The use of ICT is considered as both a specialist subject and across the wider school curriculum.


The ICT curriculum and qualification routes provided by nearly half of the secondary schools surveyed were not meeting the needs of all students, especially at Key Stage 4.


Is this a "Could Do Better" Report?

 

There is some good stuff as well ...
