Wiring schools

Opportunity, risk and profit.
What progress are schools making towards the full benefits of information and communication technology?
Who is providing the content, and is the material so far on offer really helping children’s learning in the classroom, or just providing information?
Are educational publishers too slow to grasp new opportunities, or just cautious for good reason?
And what part is being played by the National Grid for Learning?
These urgent and unresolved questions form the core of the next OPUS Meeting which takes place at a critical time for our industry as publishers, software developers, hardware producers, and telecom companies vie for their share of this potentially profitable market.
Come and hear leading decision makers tackle the key questions from two very different perspectives: who will provide the educational portals, and how will they be controlled?
