Communication technologies and education: lessons in the potential of innovation

Nigel Norman


This paper seeks to outline the implications for pupils and teachers of Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) of the use of communication and information technologies (C&IT). It is based on the experiences of one of the school/university partnerships involved in the BT Initial Teacher Training Communication Technologies Initiative, begun in the autumn term of 1996. By examining examples of projects undertaken with minimal training, it will establish some principles for further development in an area that is manifestly innovative for the majority of those involved in secondary schools.
