Briefing on changes in e-enablement measures
Measuring e-enablement
E-enablement is a measure of whether the capability is in place for an education provider to make strategic and effective use of technology to improveoutcomes for learners.In the academic year 2008-9, the average level of e-maturity in schools remained about the same as the previous year. Secondary schools, however, didshow some progress, with around one third of schools being classed as e-enabled. As we noted last y
ear, there continues to be a “tail” of schools in the
lower, ambivalent and late adopter categories. Some 38 per cent of primary schools were in these lower categories and 31 per cent of secondary schools.In order to come up with these measures, we used twelve measures from our annual schools survey that reflected the range of institutional challengesidentified in the Harnessing Technology strategy.These do not offer an exhaustive description of e-enablement. However, together they act as a good set of indicators of the overall level of developmentand embedding of technology in a school.
The indicators of an enabling infrastructure and processes were:The use of a learning platform,A better than average pupil-computer ratio,A wireless or mixed network accessible to pupils.Those for technology-confident, effective providers were:Prioritising using technology to extend learning beyond the classroom,At least half of teachers having had in-service training in ICT,Nearly all teachers enthusiastic about using ICT to deliver curriculum.Measures for confident leadership were:Governors involved in whole-school ICT strategy or plan,ICT plan is embedded in the whole-school development plan,An electronic system is used for monitoring pupil achievement.Finally, those for personalised learning experiences were:The ICT strategy addresses personalised learning,Prioritising using technology to assess learner progress,ICT is used to support learning across the curriculum.Each of these measures acted as a hurdle to be cleared, so individual schools could gain a score between 0 and 12. Schools that cleared 3 or less were
categorised as “late adopters”
, those with 4 or 5 we
re categorised as “ambivalent
, those with 6 or 7 we

and those with 8 or more we
