United Kingdom, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a subject in education, and a part of the National Curriculum. Other countries, such as the Philippines, also have ICT as an educational subject. In South Australia, ICT is not a subject until the final two years of schooling, and in NorwayICT is a course you can select for your second year of upper secondary school. From pre-school to Year 10 ICT is interwoven throughout the curriculum as part of the Essential Learning of Communication.
The ICT programme in the United Kingdom is co-ordinated by
Becta. A major current initiative is the Curriculum Onlinescheme which is aimed to accelerate the uptake of technology amongst schools. Becta took over the running of this scheme from the Department for Education and Skillsin 2005. Becta works closely with the Joint Information Systems Committeeto develop strategy.
ICT has also enabled learning through multiple intelligence as ICT has introduced learning through simulation games; this enables active learning through all senses.
