Entitlement to ICT in secondary English, Becta, 2003 ICT in English: A NATE Position Paper, 2007: ‘There are hugely practical reasons for teachers of English to make good use of the new tools available. Beyond the practical there is a wider need for us to deliver teaching and learning that is relevant to a digital generation, to view technology not just as a tool but as an entitlement.’
