Digital technology to improve standards in Welsh schools, 21/06/12 [W]

The Welsh Government has announced plans for improving performance in Wales’ schools through the use of digital technology, including the creation of a National Digital Learning Council and the launch of a bilingual platform for learners.

Education and Skills Minister Leighton Andrews set out the plans following the publication of a report on digital learning, Find it, Make it, Use it, Share it – Learning in Digital Wales, by the Digital Classroom Teaching Task and Finish Group about digital learning.

Other plans include setting up a National Digital Collection of resources for teachers, and raising the profile of digital learning by sponsoring an annual event.

The Minister for Education and Skills has described technology as ‘crucial’ to the future of education, and wants Wales to be at the forefront of digital learning.
