The ICT in Education section on the Scottish Government website has been updated.  The site now includes sections on the work of the ICT in Education Excellence Group, the ICT in Education Project Implementation Board, the Reference Group and Stakeholder Group, including minutes, remits and members. The site also includes a section on Glow, as well as useful links and contacts including Education Scotland.

The groups plan to update the website regularly with latest news and developments around the Learning ICT programme.
