Independent Government Review recommends information literacy training for teachers



The Independent Review of Digital Classroom teaching, which reported to the Welsh Government Minister for Education and Skills on 29 March, recommends that teachers in Wales are supported to develop their information literacy and other digital capabilities, and that it must be included in intial teacher training.  The report Find it, make it, use it, share it: learning in digital Wales was set up to consider aspects of digital classroom delivery which should be adopted to transform learning and teaching.
 
The report refers to the Information Literacy Framework for Wales, developed by the Welsh Information Literacy Project.  The project has today made the move from Cardiff University, where it was hosted during phase 1 and 2, to its new home for phase 3, in Coleg Llandrillo.
