Digital Literacy

I went along to a presentation by Vanessa Ranaldi this afternoon about Microsoft's Digital Literacy curriculum. Vanessa is a certified Microsoft trainer. Vanessa explained how Microsoft goes about updating its courses, particularly how it produces assessment questions. The Digital Literacy course uses objective testing. The updated course should be available from January 2010.

We currently cover the Microsoft curriculum through out NPA in Digital Literacy (SCQF 3) [PDF] that we developed in 2007. But we will have to update this next year when the new MS material becomes available.

SQA's Digital Literacy award is popular in schools and colleges as a basic introduction to ICT. Contact Hilary if you want to know more about it.
