Introduction
“We live in a digital world. It’s changing the way we work, do business,
entertain, shop and keep in touch with our family and friends.”
Scottish Government
This document aims to support teachers with curriculum planning by:
 identifying key knowledge and skills for digital
 providing links to information, resources and activities
 suggesting examples of contexts to explore further or to engage families in learning
Rather than being a ‘subject’, digital knowledge and skills might be considered a discipline
that is applied across a range of subjects.
All teachers will find it useful to have confidence in their own knowledge and skills in
digital, so that they are more confident to teach this to the learners. There is support for
teachers available here. More confident teachers might find other sources of inspiration,
such as educator communities, social media and professional learning.
There are two stages of digital skills, based on the tenet that ‘children’s development does
not advance in fixed stages’ (p13 Cambridge Primary Review, 2009).

Section 2 – Developing

common devices and apps, they should start to learn more of the features, settings and
controls available.
When learners are secure in the foundational knowledge and skills, the teacher might aim
to use this in other areas of the curriculum. For example, through searching for information
about a social subject or making a PowerPoint for literacy and English.
Progressing to application of knowledge and skills that learners are still developing in may
result in gaps or misconceptions in their understanding and abilities.

Learner Digital Skills Toolkit DRAFT.docx

  • 1. 1 Learner Digital Skills Toolkit Where to start when planning digital literacy

  • 3. 3 Introduction “We live in a digital world. It’s changing the way we work, do business, entertain, shop and keep in touch with our family and friends.” Scottish Government This document aims to support teachers with curriculum planning by:  identifying key knowledge and skills for digital  providing links to information, resources and activities  suggesting examples of contexts to explore further or to engage families in learning Rather than being a ‘subject’, digital knowledge and skills might be considered a discipline that is applied across a range of subjects. All teachers will find it useful to have confidence in their own knowledge and skills in digital, so that they are more confident to teach this to the learners. There is support for teachers available here. More confident teachers might find other sources of inspiration, such as educator communities, social media and professional learning. There are two stages of digital skills, based on the tenet that ‘children’s development does not advance in fixed stages’ (p13 Cambridge Primary Review, 2009).

  • 11. 11 Section 2 – Developing This section builds on the foundational knowledge and skills. Once learners can navigate common devices and apps, they should start to learn more of the features, settings and controls available. When learners are secure in the foundational knowledge and skills, the teacher might aim to use this in other areas of the curriculum. For example, through searching for information about a social subject or making a PowerPoint for literacy and English. Progressing to application of knowledge and skills that learners are still developing in may result in gaps or misconceptions in their understanding and abilities.
