Event description
This webinar will cover the Digital Literacy core skill and the ACSF.

About this Event

This webinar provides insight about the new Digital Literacy core skill, which sits beside the other foundation skills in the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF).

In 2020, the Department of Education, Skills and Employment (DESE) commissioned the development of the Digital Literacy Skills Framework (DLSF). This work was undertaken by Philippa McLean and Jenni Oldfield: experts and industry leaders in foundation skills.

In this new framework, Digital Literacy refers to the skills needed to use digital technologies to achieve personal goals, enhance employability, and support education and training. Digital Literacy covers the physical operations of digital devices and the software operations in those devices. It incorporates the ability to search and navigate, create, communicate, collaborate, think critically, analyse information, and address security, safety and wellbeing issues when using a variety of digital technologies.

These skills are essential for individuals to participate effectively today.

Who is this webinar for:

  • Trainers/Assessors
  • RTO Managers
  • Teachers
  • Heads of Department/Area Managers

What to expect:

  • PowerPoint and any supporting documents
