Becta Review 2006

The Becta Review provides an opportunity to examine trends in technology adoption and use and assess the progress and impact of technology in education, drawing on evidence from a range of recent surveys and research studies.


Overall there has been noticeable progress in engagement with technology in education, with rapid growth in the use of technology especially evident in the schools sector.

  • Overall access to ICT continues to improve in the schools sector, with rapid growth in the adoption and use of whole-class display and other supporting technologies.
  • There has been a related acceleration in the use of ICT by practitioners. It is becoming increasingly the norm for practitioners to prepare and deliver lessons using digital resources.
  • There is still considerable variation between institutions in the level and quality of ICT provision.
  • Progress is also notable in the adoption of learning platforms, though adoption is low in the primary schools sector.
  • The effective use of technology to enhance learner information and support is also in its early stages.
  • The strongest indications of improvements to learning and teaching through the use of ICT relate to learner motivation and inspection data.

Key issues and challenges include:

  • overcoming critical variation
  • supporting whole-institution change
  • achieving sustainability and affordability
  • embedding the learner space
  • promoting e-assessment
  • using data to support educational decisions
  • understanding the implications of difference between primary and secondary school sectors
  • supporting continuity of learning
  • understanding the implications of current learner access and capability
  • better supporting discovery and selection of digital resources.
