Teacher Digital Skills Toolkit

Teacher Digital Skills toolkit

The toolkit document outlines the skills and knowledge that comprise digital literacy in the General Teaching Council Scotland (GTCS)’s standards. The skills are organised into three levels:

  • Essential skills that are required by every teacher to engage with daily work routines, such as passwords and emails
  • Core skills that most teachers should have to effectively prepare learning activities and resources for learning, including using devices and apps to create presentations
  • Enhancing Learning and Teaching, which provides an overview of how digital skills may be used to improve learning, teaching and assessment

CIDREE Yearbook 2021 – Digital Literacy: Curriculum Development and Implementation in European Countries

The latest CIDREE Yearbook was published towards the end of last year. Titled Digital Literacy: Curriculum Development and Implementation in European Countries, we contributed the Scottish chapter on how digital literacy has been embraced by education practitioners and learners across Early Learning and Childcare, primary and secondary schools (ages 3-18). 

It details how adapting and diversifying modes of professional learning are critical in providing practitioners with relevant, motivating and skills-building opportunities to improve their own digital learning and subsequently provide better digital learning for young people. It then expands on how this has led to the development of knowledge, skills and application in the use of digital tools and on pedagogical practice.
