Technology for Learning
At Monmouth Comprehensive School, Technology for Learning is underpinned by the Welsh Government’s Digital Competency Framework (DCF). We live in a digital society and it is essential that everyone is ‘digitally competent’ to access the new opportunities to learn, work, create and engage in a society which is shaped by digital technology.
Many aspects of a young person’s life are mediated and augmented by digital technology. Digital technology not only co-authors their opinions and influences their behaviour, it also plays host to a young person’s relationships and complements their education.
Digital competence is the set of skills, knowledge and attitudes that enable the confident, creative and critical use of technologies and systems. Digital competence enables a person to be a confident digital citizen, to interact and collaborate digitally, to produce work digitally, and to be confident in handling data and computational thinking (problem solving).
We have made it part of our mission at Monmouth Comprehensive School to provide all our learners with high-level digital skills to ensure that they are are digitally competent, and evolve into enterprising, creative and critical thinkers.
