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.

 

The Welsh Conservatives, Welsh Liberal Democrats and Plaid Cymru have all thrown their weight behind the findings of Professor Graham Donaldson’s wide-ranging review of curriculum and assessment arrangements.


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.
