Why? Increased IT usage in schools.
Is our school signed up?
Content frequently accessed websites - increased speed.
Secure - firewalls
Open - no websites blocked, the network doesn't specify which websites to use.
All schools by end of 2016
First schools - a range
100mbps max 2013
2013 onwards. Speeds will increase as needs increase
Do not have to have the managed network to use the portal.
Teachers can search for information, find it, add more info, put into a workbook, save it. That work book can then found next time another teacher does that search. Teachers will be recognised for their work.
Information will have reviews to show validity.

Connected to the VLN - have been working with them

Would it be the same login as TD?
