The Digital Skills Framework for Key Stage 3
The CCEA Digital Skills Framework for Key Stage 3 takes the concepts behind the three broad tiers of digital skills and applies them to the context of a learner within a school setting.
The framework should ensure that learners attending schools in Northern Ireland become:
- Digital Citizens, with the skills to enable them to take part in digital aspects of society, safely and without hindrance;
- Digital Workers, who are able to apply their digital skills to further their learning or in a work-related setting; and
- Digital Makers, who are starting to build their own technology.
The Digital Skills Framework for Key Stage 3 provides some additional knowledge and understanding that is not explicitly outlined in the Levels of Progression in Using ICT.
