In Merseyside last week, David Blunkett, Secretary of State for Education, launched Meon (the Merseyside Education Online Network), the first stage in the government's National Grid for Learning. Meon will provide 10 secondary schools and two adult education centres with managed computer networks, teacher training, advice on curriculum management, online support and help desk services for the next five years. The project is designed to give up to 15,000 pupils and 600 teachers new learning and teaching skills through the use of technology. The contract to design, implement and manage the project, worth #4.77 million, was won by ICL.
