objective of I-CURRICULUM
is to establish a European framework for defining information skills and
a curriculum appropriate for living and learning in the digital age: To
identify the key metaskills and metaknowledge needed for living in the
digital age in detail. To explore digital tools and artifacts and pedagogic
practices that can lead to the development of broad digital literacy.
To develop a framework for the description of curricula in terms of the
Information/metaknowledge they encompass. To develop curriculum in information
technology that may have more appeal to young women. To disseminate findings
to policy makers, teachers and other educators and the producers of digital
resources. We will work across the age range, as is appropriate to each
partner including primary, secondary and vocational education learners.
Outputs will be Guidelines for curriculum action (reform, the design of
teaching schemes or individual learning activities). These guidelines
will be supported by Replicable exemplar activities across curricular
contexts which explicitly develop metaskills and metaknowledge in the
design and development of modelling activities and communicative multimedia
that are capable of being taught within the framework of education systems
in Member States. These case studies and guidelines will also be re-framed
as professional development of teachers. Dissemination activities: Seminars
for stakeholders, A face to face and video-streamed symposium with the
capability of synchronous and asynchronous participation over the internet.
Recommendations for policy and practice (on paper and web) and a range
of networking activities.
