2010 will be a special year as it is the starting year for the Ultranet. This is like a huge WIKISPACE that connects students, teachers and parents together. Now fully operational it has replaced Edcube as the digital portfolio, Assesment Writer/Quickvic for reporting will also be superseded by the Ultranet. We now use Ecases21 for attendance roll marking.
Also this year will see the introduction of the national curriculum, beginning with numeracy and literacy. Although ICT curriculum will not be available till phase 3 of the National Curriculum, the creation of the proficiency loveles at NAP — ICT Literacy assessmentand
The National Sample Assessment for Information and Communication Technology Literacy (ICT Literacy) will be a great move foreward in ICT Assement and reporting.
