"Digital literacy is the combination of skills, knowledge and understanding that young people need to learn in order to participate fully and safely in an increasingly digital world. It builds the capabilities for an individual to live, learn and work in a digital society." Digital Literacy: Teaching critical thinking for our digital world, Becta 2010
Digital Literacy is built into Somerset ActiveBYTES and the Technology in our Lives blocks of the New Wessex Computing Planning. In addition we provide further support below to support the wider development of confidence to increase understanding of digital literacy, in terms of research information, across the whole school curriuclum.
