Naace ICT Framework May 2012
“Digital wisdom is a twofold concept, referring both to wisdom arising from the use of digital technology to access cognitive power beyond our innate capacity and to wisdom in the prudent use of technology to enhance our capabilities. Because of technology, wisdom seekers in the future will benefit from unprecedented, instant access to ongoing worldwide discussions, all of recorded history, everything ever written, massive libraries of case studies and collected data, and highly realistic simulated experiences equivalent to years or even centuries of actual experience. How and how much they make use of these resources, how they filter through them to find what they need, and how technology aids them will certainly play an important role in determining the wisdom of their decisions and judgments. Technology alone will not replace intuition, good judgment, problem-solving abilities, and a clear moral compass. But in an unimaginably complex future, the digitally unenhanced person, however wise, will not be able to access the tools of wisdom that will be available to even the least wise digitally enhanced human.” Prensky
At Belleville our aim would be that by the end of their time with us children would be able to support and enrich their learning by making a number of key choices in their use of technology to express themselves. They would communicate and develop ideas through the use of a number of different technologies. The key was that they would not be reliant on any one platform and that we as a school would recognise the need to move quickly and anticipate developments in technology over both the short and long term. This would also have the advantage of introducing elements of the Computing Curriculum that was due to be implemented in 2014-15.
