Abstract

This paper describes the evolution of a Digital Learning Framework (DLF), designed and developed to help Irish schools embed digital technologies more deeply into their practice A census of digital technology usage in Irish schools (Cosgrove et al, 2014) had identified that teacher practices had undergone little change since the launch of the initial policy for schools, Schools IT2000 (DES, 1997) Building on this research and a consultative process the Department of Education and Skills developed a new Digital Strategy for Schools, 2015-2020 The new strategy decided to adapt the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (UNESCO, 2011) so that schools would have greater clarity around the concept of embedding digital technologies This paper will outline the process engaged in to review and adapt the UNESCO ICT-CFT, detailing the literature reviewed and how it was used to inform the design, development, evaluation and review of the Irish Digital Learning Framework
