Across the world, educators and learners today have access to rich multi-media content and content creation tools, ‘expert communities’, freely available social and collaborative platforms. This interactive session will highlight a range of creative and engaging online tools, communities and services which provide opportunities to develop teachers’ and pupils’ digital literacy skills.
