"The government has signalled its ambition of realising the untapped potential of technology across the education ecosystem," writes Martin Hamilton. "We fully support those aims."

" Students "are able to explore the rainforest, steer virtual ships or programme robots" from their classroom, Hinds notes.

This article outlines how JISC supports that vision.
