Information and learning technology guides for Wales
21 August 2009
Last month we launched a set of guides to help teachers and managers in Wales use technology to support the learning they and their organisations deliver. The two application guides provide a bridge between the new professional standards for Teachers, Tutors, Trainers and the national occupational standards for leadership and management with further knowledge, application and illustration in the use of technology. Weblinks and other sources of information are included in all sections.
The guides were launched on 1 July 2009 at the Moodle-Wales and Learntech Wales Integration – Learning Together conference. In partnership with the Regional Support Centre Wales we ran a workshop as part of the event, to introduce the guides to delegates and demonstrate how they can be used by individuals and their employers to identify skills and knowledge gaps, and therefore help inform their continuing professional development.
The guides were developed in consultation with those working in lifelong learning in the Wales, and we would like to thank all those who contributed. Lifelong Learning UK worked with a number of partners in the development of the guides including:
- Welsh Assembly Government (Department of Children, Education, Lifelong learning and Skills)
- NIACE DC
- RSC Wales
We thank them for their participation and support.
A separate publication of Good Practice Case Studies has also been developed and will be available soon.
Very timely and useful information for all those of us working in education in Wales.
