There will also the opportunity to obtain Agored Cymru ESfWL Level 2 Digital Collaboration accreditation.

Date: 27 June 2016

The course is aimed at tutors, trainers and assessors who have the responsibility of delivering the Essential Digital Literacy Skills (EDLS) qualifications.

Jo Kelso and Karen Workman from LearnOn will be leading the day which will be focusing on the following:

  • An overview of Essential Digital Literacy Skills (EDLS)
  • How digital collaborative tools could be used to enhance personal and professional practices
  • A range of digital collaborative tools that may be utilised in the EDLS Controlled Tasks

After lunch there will be interactive workshops which have been designed as a series of linked learning experiences. Participants will have the opportunity to be actively engaged with digital tools, to work collaboratively and to engage in purposeful professional dialogue.

The workshops will include:

  • Complete a task using digital collaborative tools
  • Aid understanding of terminology used in EDLS
  • Design tasks to be adapted for classroom use
  • Design and populate an action plan in collaboration with colleagues

LearnOn’s philosophy is simple – uncompromising commitment to excellence. We achieve this by being honest and open as we know how precious any investment in training is to all involved. We ensure that we stay current in order to be credible and subscribe to a regime of continuous improvement so we can provide the very best experience at our events.

Jo and Karen have been heavily involved with all stages of implementation of the new Essential Digital Literacy Skills – from reviewing and refining the Design Principles, writing the guidance for practitioners and learners to contributing to the content of the diagnostic and summative assessments.
