Here at Castlegar National School we are thrilled to have been selected as one of 30 Primary Schools in the country to have been selected to take part in the Digital Learning Framework Program.
A new Digital Learning Framework for primary and post primary schools has been developed by the Department and will be available to all schools for the 2017/2018 school year. The implementation of the Framework will initially be trialled in a cross sectoral representative sample of approximately 30 primary and 20 post primary schools and the outcome of this trial will inform the national roll out of the Framework in September 2018. The Digital Learning Framework represents one of the key supports envisaged under the Digital Strategy for Schools 2015-2020. In implementing the Digital Learning Framework, schools and teachers are given a structure which will allow them to identify where they are on the journey towards embedding digital technologies in teaching, learning and assessment, and enable them to progress in that journey.
