§ Mr. Robin Squire
The UK Education Departments' super-highways initiative was launched earlier this year. As part of this, our consultation paper "Superhighways for Education" considered the use of network connections, including the Internet, in all sectors of education and sought views widely. We shall be announcing the outcome later this year, including plans to evaluate a series of projects piloting innovative communication technologies in education. Work is also in progress on the potential of super-highways to deliver training.
