The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) is to invest £59.8 million in technology for learners. The investment for 2007/08 will contribute to learning infrastructure, student equipment upgrades and expanding the numbers of mobile devices available for students.

The investment will provide for major upgrades to IT equipment in the offender learning sector. The investment programme will also focus on procurement of appropriate technology to expand the LSC’s Learning for Living and Work strategy and to support the transformation and increased supply of high-quality, local provision for learners with learning difficulties and/or disabilities

The additional investment will enable more FE colleges to introduce mobile learning devices such as Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and mp3 players into their teaching strategies. Work based learning providers may also benefit through the Learning Innovation Grant.
