The reality in many primary schools is that their computer hardware is too outdated, according to a teacher writing in The Guardian (section 2, p6).

John McMinn says: 'Clearly money needs to be found to buy modern equipment and to improve teachers' ICT skills.'

He says huge investment in school computer hardware and teacher training is vital if excellence is to be no more than a political soundbite.

He suggests the government should be linking up with business, to try and solve the problems, not leaving it to schools.

He concludes: 'The millennium dome represents all that is successful about modern Britain, but recreating schools in its image as high-tech computer environments requires more than cosmetic changes. schools are trying. Now it's up to business and government.'
