  • Have an opportunity to become active learners through planning and implementing your own enquiry to enhance digital literacy in your own school or college
  • Receive practical examples of how others have developed digital literacy
  • Work with others to identify opportunities to develop digital literacy within your schools or colleges and contexts
  • Explore referenced evidence of how digital literacy can be incorporated into practice

See the difference by implementing your own enquiry or intervention with colleagues and/or students:

  • Review and reflect on lessons learnt, impacts, what went well, and what could be improved
  • Communicate key findings to others e.g. colleagues, parents, students, wider communities, and to other participants on the training
  • Refine and develop approaches and next steps for further embedding digital literacy in schools or colleges and classrooms


This course is suitable for all teachers from state schools including EYFS, primary, secondary and FE, including special schools and PRUs based in England.
