Supporting teachers, promoting digital literacy, transforming learning

How do we ensure every learner has access to the knowledge and skills necessary to make the most of technology in terms of educational, social and economic opportunities? This question has been a drive for the DigiLit Leicester project which focuses on improving learner outcomes and raising standards in secondary level (11-16 year old) educational provision.
The project team released the first project outputs recently which include the development of a digital literacy framework situated in secondary school practice, and the creation of a survey tool designed to identify staff confidence levels in relation to the framework. In short the framework identifies six key areas:

  • Finding, Evaluating and Organising
  • Creating and Sharing
  • Assessment and Feedback
  • Communication, Collaboration and Participation
  • E-Safety and Online Identity
  • Technology supported Professional Development
