Using 1997 data as a baseline, changes in Internet connection and use since the announcement of the NGfL and NOF funding are tracked. Data includes: The types and numbers of computers, networks and computer suites The types and numbers of Internet connections Methods of ensuring that pupils do not have access to unsuitable material The amount and type of use which is being made of Internet connections The distribution of Internet computers across subjects The pattern of use of the Internet within subjects The use of the Internet within D&T teaching The present position is summarised and some future considerations are discussed.
