    • Abstract:
      Current learning and teaching methods, such as resource–based learning, require children to make use of a range of resources within and outside school. However, access to learning resources, especially ICT (information and communications technology), depends on the facilities available within a child’s school, home and local community. A research project entitled “Children, Access and Learning: Resource–based Learning and the Impacts of Environment and Learning Cultures” was undertaken by CIRT (Centre for Information Research) at the University of Central England in Birmingham, UK between March 2000 and September 2001. This research emerged from concerns that circumstances in and beyond school may disadvantage those children without easy access to resources. This article outlines some of the findings of the research in the context of current debates surrounding the growing importance of ICT in education. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
