Digital literacy resources

Created with assistance from Archives of IT, these 5 new resources will take your students on a journey to improve their digital literacy using computers and technologies in school and at home.

Digital skills are essential for daily life and can open the doors to a whole range of exciting technologies that learners may have access to in the future.

In this set of resources, learners aged 5 to 11 can carry out a series of hands-on activities and learn practical skills around animation, recording their own interview and even developing a brand new computer game! There are also links to Art and History when learners can look at abstract geometric art and then create their own computer art, as well as learning how to capture and edit digital images.

Remember all our online resources are free to download. Please do share your learning highlights with us @IETeducation and email your work to Archives of IT to inspire more children to take part in these activities! Please remember that by sending us these images, you as a school consent to the students' work being displayed on our website and/or social media channels.
