Actually, Leah Palmer does not exist..."

Wales' radical curriculum overhaul wins cross-party support

Wales' radical curriculum overhaul wins cross-party support | Digital Literacy - Education | Scoop.it

Plans to modernise Wales’ national curriculum by ensuring pupils are “digitally competent” by the time they leave school have received cross-party support.

His report, commissioned by the Welsh Labour Government, champions six “areas of learning and experience” as the basis for Wales’ new schools offer, which would underpin all learning from the age of three through to 16.


Prof Donaldson supports the introduction of three “cross-curriculum responsibilities” – literacy, numeracy and digital competence – that all teachers would be expected to deliver.
