The Ministerial Code says that “Ministers should be as open as possible with Parliament and the public, refusing to provide information only when disclosure would not be in the public interest”.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>It is the responsibility of individual ministers to decide what answers they give to Questions for Written Answer (QWAs), and they are of course accountable to the House for those answers. The importance of this direct accountability is such that I recently decided, following the introduction of a new system for answering QWAs electronically, to require Ministers in this House to continue providing personally signed answers to noble Lords. The Ministerial Code states that “It is of paramount importance that Ministers give accurate and truthful information to Parliament”.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We do want to see schools making informed decisions about what technology will best meet their specific needs. With this in mind, the Department for Education has recently launched The Education Technology Action Group (ETAG), a new policy development group which aims to identify and develop opportunities to maximise the effective use of learning technology across higher education, further education and primary and secondary schools. The group brings together a number of industry and education bodies involved in technology. ETAG will develop a series of evidence based proposals to support the increased use of technology in education at all levels.</p><p>The Department for Education is also running a project to explore how schools can make good use of 3D printers in teaching the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Schools from forty two teaching school alliances, including primary schools such as Fairlawn Teaching School in Lewisham and High View School in Plymouth, have been supported to buy a 3D printer and create interesting and innovative schemes of work, lesson plans and projects using the 3D printer to enhance teaching and learning.</p>
