A few years ago the DfES published the e-strategy guide "Harnessing Technology" - a view of how technology would be used to support learning, raise the engagement between home and school, and to contribute to raising standards across all schools. If you don't want to wade through the 71 pages of the guide, and would instead prefer to see a practical example of what is possible, then why not read the Shireland Language College story. Read how they created a Learning Gateway for themselves and their partner schools, and used it to connect with their learners, parents and the wider community. It was described last year by Tony Blair as "one of the most remarkable ICT systems in the country", and so it makes a great exemplar.
