Digital Literacy in Practice: 
Making Change Happen 
NetworkED: Technology in Education 
Josie Fraser 22 October 2014
Building Schools for the Future 
• Approximately £340 million capital build 
programme 
• 23 secondary school sites - including 
Secondary Behavioural Support Service, SEN, 
Children’s Hospital School 
• 20,000 learner places – all building works 
completed by 2015
Digital Literacy 
…equipping staff & learners with the skills 
to not only take advantage of the 
information & opportunities offered by 
technology, but to take an active role in 
shaping & creating those opportunities - 
social, educational, political, civic, & 
economic.
Key Questions

  5. 2014 digital literacy school staff survey findings and recommendations: http://www.digilitleic.com/?p=542 Sharing and promoting Pioneer practice Fifty-six per cent of staff across the city who participated in the survey, classified their skills and confidence at the Pioneer level in one or more areas.   Pioneer level staff can be characterised as having high levels of confidence across a wide range of tools and approaches for the use of technology to support learning and teaching.   In order to score at Pioneer level, staff are actively supporting their peers – either through the creation of support materials, the design and delivery of training, or the provision of informal support.
  6. 2014 digital literacy school staff survey findings and recommendations: http://www.digilitleic.com/?p=542 Twenty-three per cent of staff across the city who participated in the survey, classified their skills and confidence at Entry-level in one or more areas.   Staff who fall within this level are unlikely to have had many opportunities to experiment or engage with technology in the school context. The Core level in the framework relates to the project's baseline of knowledge, skills and practice in the context of secondary education.  
  7. Comparison highlights. 2014 digital literacy school staff survey findings and recommendations: http://www.digilitleic.com/?p=542 The comparison of data from the 2013 and 2014 surveys demonstrates the DigiLit Leicester project approach and work has had a positive impact over the last year, with the largest area of progression being from staff who previously identified at Core level. Less progress is shown at Entry level, particularly within Assessment and Feedback and Communication, Collaboration and Participation, indicating that activities which provide greater support and specifically focusing on staff who are interested in beginning to use technology to support their practice is required. Recommendation: Provide supported opportunities and resources specifically designed for and accessible by Entry level staff, particularly in relation to Assessment and Feedback and Communication, Collaboration and Participation. Twenty-one per cent of returning participants noted an increase in their skills and confidence. Comparison data indicates that the project approach (the framework, reflective survey tool, centrally supported activities linked to strand areas, and support for school based, practitioner led activities), has been particularly successful with respect to supporting staff working at Core levels.
  8. Staff rate their skills and confidence highest in the area of E-Safety and Online Identity, with 81.8 per cent placing themselves in the Developer and Pioneer levels.  
  9. Staff rated their skills and confidence the lowest in Communication, Collaboration and Participation, with 38.7 per cent placing themselves at the Entry and Core levels.   This suggests that e-safety education is being managed within a context of restriction and limits on access to certain technologies and digital environments. This approach can be characterised as protected by restrictions and, whilst effective, has been identified as potentially limiting to online opportunities, including the development of digital literacy (Helsper et al. 2013).
  10. In Creating and Sharing, 42.1 per cent of staff rated their skills and confidence within the Entry and Core levels of the framework. In line with last year, staff comments informed us that they were unfamiliar with Open Educational Resources (OERs), and Open Licencing. The DigiLit Leicester Project has a commitment to Open Education and the production of Open Educational Resources, to ensure best value, maximum impact of our work, and support connected and collaborative learning practices. The project is currently working on Entry level materials for staff in this area, as well as guidance for school leaders. This work will support staff across the city in understanding and making use of Open Licensing, and creating and sharing their own Open Educational Resources. Recommendation: Provide Entry level advice and guidance for school staff in relation to open licences and the discovery, use, development and creation of Open Educational Resources.
  11. The project represents a culture change for both Leicester City Council and the wider schools sector, serving as an exemplar both nationally and internationally. All 23 BSF schools have engaged with the project. The DigiLit team has led on six events and projects, and 21 school-led projects have been undertaken to date. Partnership with De Montfort University, through a Knowledge Exchange Project, is supporting a new digital literacy strategy and implementation plan within the University. The project has raised awareness of potential practices and creating a shared understanding. Analysis comparing the survey data from 2013 and 2014 shows that a statistically significant change in staff confidence has occurred. Levels achieved increased in five of the six key areas (excluding E-Safety and Online Identity).
