PDST Using the Digital Learning Framework (DLF) to embed Digital Technologies in Teaching, Learning and Assessment - Primary

This seminar day is for principals and one other nominated teacher per school who have not attended this seminar previously.

The purpose of this seminar is to support and inform school leaders and digital learning teams in applying the new Digital Learning Framework (DLF) to embed digital technologies in teaching, learning and assessment.  The Digital Learning Framework (DLF) was launched in the 2017/2018 school year as part of a trial with 50 schools and evaluated by the Education Research Centre (ERC).

As part of the next phase, PDST is offering full-day seminars for the school principal and one other member of staff. These will be delivered in local education centres throughout the country. Details regarding seminars specifically designed for special schools will follow shortly.

The seminar will:

·         Outline the six-step planning process involved in the Digital Learning Framework to effectively embed digital technologies in school practice, supporting teaching, learning, leadership and management goals

·         Suggest how to commence this process in your school, and how to establish a digital learning team to develop a vision for such learning

·         Illustrate how the Digital Learning Framework and accompanying    Digital Learning Planning Guidelines provide a framework for teachers and school leaders to better realise this vision

          Explain how the Digital Learning Framework supports the Digital Strategy for Schools 2015-2020 and other national policies on curriculum reform and implementation, skills development, teacher education and learner experiences and outcomes

·         Showcase the range of supports provided by the PDST Digital Technologies and PDST Technology in Education teams to enhance this work in your school.

In addition, participants will be invited by the Educational Research Centre (ERC) to complete a short (5-10 minute) questionnaire during the seminar asking about:

  • digital resources currently available in the school, and
  • initial thoughts on embedding digital technologies in teaching, learning and assessment in the school.

The Department of Education and Skills will provide substitute cover where required.

To access resources and partake in activities, participants are requested to please bring a fully charged laptop with them if possible.
