Government abolishes Technology Policy Unit

The Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed that the unit charged with developing the technology in schools policy will no longer exist after April. [More]

This quote is repeated in many online publications:

“We want schools to be free to use curricula and teaching resources that properly equip pupils for the 21st Century and we want experts like Microsoft, Google and Cambridge University to be involved in the development of ICT teaching,” the DfE spokeswoman said.

“Excellent developments such as Raspberry Pi and Computing at School have taken off in schools precisely because government has stepped back and let the experts take the lead.”
