Hwb - Towards a digital future
A pioneering new digital learning platform for all 3-19 education institutes in Wales.
Are you inspired by the possibilities that digital technologies can offer learners? Do you help young people to play an active part in the fast-changing digital landscape?
A dynamic new digital learning platform has been launched, which provides a space for teachers and educators to share and access a range of digital tools and resources which will support the learning of all 3 to 19 year olds in Wales.
Hwb, Wales' bilingual virtual learning environment, will also provide learners and teachers with the opportunity to create and share their own resources and work collaboratively.
As part of the learning platform, schools are able to transform the way they communicate with learners and their parents, through their own Hwb+ individual learning platforms.
By signing up to Hwb, schools will be able to access Microsoft's cloud service Office 365 for teachers and learners. A range of tools and content will also be progressively added to Hwb over the lifetime of the service.
Office 365 provides an online version of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote and Lync. This ensures that all staff and pupils have access to the Microsoft Office suite regardless of whether they have it installed on their own computer.
This is the first major step as part of a wider digital learning strategy which attempts to boost the information technology (IT) competency of teachers entering the profession and help promote a culture of digital citizenship for learners.
