Why Study Cambridge Primary Digital Literacy?

Digital literacy is an essential skill for learners of all ages, including the youngest primary students. The digital world allows us to connect, collaborate, innovate and discover new information on an ever broadening scale, and learners must be able to effectively use technology from the very beginning of their educational journey. (Cambridge Assessment International Education, n.d.)

What will students learn?

Students develop the digital skills that will help with many aspects of their future learning and development. They will:

  • understand their place, and the place of others, in an interconnected world and make educated decisions about the information that they encounter online
  • develop knowledge and understanding that will allow them to respond to, and evaluate technology of the future
  • develop skills to create increasingly sophisticated documents and presentations
  • learn how to become positive contributors to the digital world
  • use digital technology safely and protect their own physical and emotional wellbeing

How is the programme taught?

We embed the content of Digital Literacy within broader learning. For example, learners develop content creation skills while preparing to present their work in mathematics or science, and safety messages are embedded within cross-curricular sessions about how learners should conduct and protect themselves in the modern world.

This course supports progression to Cambridge Lower Secondary Digital Literacy.
