Introduction

Technology Enhanced Learning is a Short Learning Programme designed to address the digital literacies and digital citizenship skills gap.  Educators have a responsibility to support their students to develop these skills.   Before doing this, however, educators themselves need to enhance their digital literacies and digital citizenship skills.  

Web and Digital literacies refer to a series of skills required to effectively use both online tools as well as to access and use information on the World Wide Web 

Digital citizenship refers to the accountability an individual has to navigate and use information on the World Wide Web responsibly and ethically.  

Digital Literacies provides foundational knowledge and skills with the aim of building and enhancing a teacher’s digital literacy levels.
