This consultation survey was set up as part of ALT’s work for the Education Technology Action Group (ETAG), reporting to the Secretary of State for Education, the Minister for Higher Education, and the Minister for Skills, in 2014 and led by Prof Diana Laurillard, Chair of ALT.
ETAG was initiated by the Minister for Skills to extend the work of his previous initiative, which set up the Further Education Learning Technology Action Group (FELTAG) in 2013.
ETAG was set up to work across all sectors of education. The Association for Learning Technology is the UK’s leading membership organisation in the learning technology field, and in this capacity took on the task of testing the FELTAG findings across a broader group of practitioners from all education sectors. In addition, given the extensive experience of ALT members, the survey collected evidence in the form of brief descriptions of case study examples of effective uses of learning technology.
The report summarises the findings of the ALT survey on ‘the effective use of learning technology in education’.
