Digital Literacies – A new framework for ICT




ICT – Information Communication Technology has been the title of the curriculum approach to the teaching and learning of technology in schools in England for the best part of this millennia. It has outstayed its welcome therefore in January of this year, Michael Gove announced that the ICT program of study was no longer necessary and schools could teach ICT as they saw fit. Finally, we were given the ‘nod’ to continue doing as we had been doing which was to ignore the old ICT curriculum only fit for the 1990′s and concentrate on approaching ICT in ways that reflected the constant change revolving around technology. Amen.
