EDS: Teaching and learning for using digital devices

Module description.

This module takes an overview of the content, issues and strategies that teachers need to understand, adopt and develop when teaching those skills areas in the National Standards for Essential Digital Skills (2019) that relate to working online. Namely:

- Communicating
- Transacting
- Being safe and responsible online

These are undeniably essential skills for a citizen of 21st century Britain. They underpin almost all aspects of work and social life. An adult lacking these skills is excluded from a wide range of possibilities and at a critical disadvantage compared to those who can engage.
