Dennis Stevenson (1997)
Information And Communications Technology in Uk Schools - an Independent Inquiry
The report of the group established in the UK in 1996 at the behest of Tony Blair, Labour Party leader in opposition, and David Blunkett, Shadow Minister of Education, to examine the role that ICT should be playing in primary and secondary education. This was, in part, due to their recognition that the networking issues raised over the previous two years (cabling and the National Grid for Learning), were only two of many issues that needed to be understood in the wider context of technology in education. Tony Blair and David Blunkett established the group independently of the Labour Party, making it plain that the members of the group should be chosen for their skills and not for their political background.
