Glasgow City Council has bought The Granada Toolkit from Granada Learning to deliver the 5-14 ICT guidelines in all its primary and secondary schools.
"The Granada Toolkit was selected because it provides support for the Nelson Thornes ICT programme," explains Lynne Innes, primary ICT co-ordinator for Glasgow, which has invested in a multimillion pound public-private partnership to refurbish its school buildings and equip them with ICT. Its ICT service, managed by Mitel Networks, provides two PCs in every classroom (for a computer: pupil ratio of 1:15), e-mail facilities and Internet access for all pupils and teachers on every classroom computer, and five years of ICT teacher training.
The toolkit suite of software is designed to provide schools with a talking word processor with a direct e-mail facility, a painting package, spreadsheet, database, multimedia presentation creator and password-protected management tool.
