Is digital Literacy for students ONLY? What about teachers?
Gareth Morgan's insight:

I couldn't have said it better. We all expect teachers to be literate and numerate, but are they all digitally competent? The expectation in Sept 2016, with the digital competence framework being introduced, is that all teachers will be competent to embed ICT skills across the curriculum.

Gareth Morgan's insight:
