  • Improving access to digital technology for all learners
  • Ensuring curriculum and assessment relevance in a digital context
  • Extending the skills and confidence of teachers in the appropriate and effective use of digital technology

Participants will be asked to consider:

  • For each of the themes identified, do participants agree with the priorities for action outlined? Are there other actions that should be considered
