BECTA cuts the jargon

11th February 2000 at 00:00
The British Educational Communications and Technology Agency (BECTA) has made its own multilingual jargon-buster available on the Web. Its information sheets translate ICT jargon into 13 different languages including Albanian, Turkish, Hindi and German. The sheets have been preparedby the special needs and inclusion team to help refugees and students who do not have English as a first language. The latest ESOL newsletter with Internet quiz and filtering is also available at the BECTA website.
