The teacher training department of the NHL University of Applied Sciences have developed an international online platform with three main objectives: allowing pupils all over the world to communicate and collaborate with peers at home and abroad; allowing student teachers to practice their didactic and pedagogical skills “anytime and anywhere” and offering university researchers and students a virtual laboratory to experiment with innovative learning methodologies and research. The platform has been developed by NHL lecturers and students with the express purpose to achieve the ambitions outlined above in a safe, secure and non-commercial environment.

Embedding ICT in the literacy and numerically strategies
This expansion project, run by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), widens and builds on a series of successful pilots in primary schools, which started in 2002. The pilot schemes set out to identify and disseminate leading and practice in the use of interactive whiteboards in teaching and raising standards in literacy and mathematics in Years 5 and 6.

The first part is produced by the Ministry of Education, and the second part produced outside the Ministry of Education (by private publishers and international organisations).
The aim of the DfES’ Schools Interactive Whiteboards Expansion project is to increase the number of interactive whiteboards in primary and secondary schools across the country and to provide the right training and support, so that teachers can use whiteboards effectively in their teaching.
