My Digital Footprint

John Seely Brown

The web has just begun to have an impact on our lives. As fascinated as we are with it today, we’re still seeing it in its early forms… My belief is that not only will the web be as fundamental to society as electrification but that it will be subject to many of the same diffusion and absorption dynamics as that earlier medium.

Boys' achievement in secondary schools: Ofsted report 
Summary of Ofsed report 2003.  When boys enter secondary school they are already well behind girls in English, although they achieve marginally better than girls in mathematics.  Except in a small number of schools, this ‘gap’ in attainment does not close during the secondary years and boys continue to achieve less well than girls in KS3 tests and GCSE exams.  In 1996 Ofsted published a report entitled The Gender Divide which highlighted this gap.  This report follows up some of the issues raised and identifies approaches used to raise boys’ attainment.
