Following the successful piloting of the draft National Information Literacy Framework (Scotland) there emerged the need to transform the 68 page draft information literacy framework pdf into a more flexible tool that enabled case studies / exemplars of good practice to be added. Work also needed to be done on:
- linking the schools and FE sector to the new Curriculum for Excellence specifically Literacy Across Learning outcomes and experiences which illustrates the progressional nature of literacy skills (including information / critical literacy) and how these play an important role in all learning
- The Scottish Governments Skills for Scotland: a lifelong skills strategy to the lifelong learning sector
- expand the lifelong learning section as a result of research and developement work carried out in the workplace and adult literacies.
The idea of using a weblog to facilitate the above emerged as experience with the project blog grew and the potential of what could be done with blogs apart from blogging. The static pages contain the framework details whilst the blog postings will facilitate the communication of any news, activities and developments plus enable interested parties to comment on any of the postings or on the framework pages.
This is very much a work in progress as there is a lot going on in the world of education and skills.
Our thanks go to:
for funding to restructure the framework / add the exemplars of good practice/case studies
