This page provides links to reports of studies into the implementation of digital technology strategies in schools.

These studies and our analyses of relevant literature are being used to inform the development of emerging trends in schools and strategic advice on digital technology strategies.

The Vital Case Studies[edit]

A number of case studies have been carried out in schools around England to examine a number of key technology initiatives. These include Bring your own device (BYOD), Bring your own technology (BYOT), 1:1 computing, Digital Leaders, Flipped classrooms and Cloud computing.

They all shared the same basic methodology and research instruments.
