Motion text

That this House is concerned that initial teacher training and continuing professional development available for teachers does not adequately train them to use the resources available in a twenty-first century classroom; believes that because of this the potential of ICT resources such as interactive whiteboards and virtual learning environments is not being fully exploited; and calls on the Government to support teachers' development in the context of their schools' present and future needs.
