Evaluation of the Digital Learning Framework (DLF) Trial

The Educational Research Centre has been asked by the Department of Education ‎and skills to carry out an evaluation of the Digital Learning Framework. The new ‎framework, for primary and post-primary schools, was published in September 2017. ‎The framework is a key part of the Digital Strategy for Schools 2015-2020. ‎

A trial of the framework in 20 post-primary and 30 primary schools runs from ‎October 2017-May 2018.‎

The Educational Research Centre is responsible for developing and hosting ‎questionnaires for school principals, teachers and PDST staff; analysing the results; ‎and drafting a report on the evaluation. ‎

In addition, focus groups in six of the participating schools will be carried out. ‎

The evaluation report will be submitted to the Department of Education and Skills in ‎July 2018.‎

More information on the Digital Learning Framework is available from the ‎Department’s website and the PDST website.

Information on the evaluation can be found in this presentation.
