In order to be effective, safe and knowledgeable citizens, learners should be able to choose and use tools appropriately for effective communication of ideas, finding information or solving problems. Making these choices wisely requires levels of understanding and a range of skills, knowledge and competence. It may involve understanding aspects of hardware and software, choosing to use a wiki to prepare shared information pages or deciding on which piece of software to use when demonstrating understanding in History or Geography.
Having a high level of “Digital Wisdom” will result in learners who can make decisions about using technology in interesting, creative and productive ways. Developing learners with Digital Wisdom lies at the heart of the ICT learning experiences and incorporates the wisdom that is not ours innately, but which we are able to develop through the appropriate use of technology.
