- advice and sharing best practice in using ICT across the curriculum.
In the words of the HMIE publication Improving Scottish Education: ICT in Learning and Teaching (2007) - taken from the Technologies Outcomes (April 2009) which updates previous research in Scotland and Britain included in the Impact on Learning and Teaching page and others in the ICT Research section of this site.
Several curriculum areas including the technologies provide opportunities for children and young people to consider security aspects associated with ICT, for example keeping personal data secure, and the important consequences of these for individuals. It is important for children and young people to recognise security risks when handling information across the curriculum, and act accordingly.
The references in these ICT in CfE pages are based largely on research conducted by Roddy Stuart, ICT Consultant on behalf of the Scottish ICT Development Group representing all Scotland's 32 councils and TIEs.
