One Response to “Digital Age Curriculum”

  1. Woah, don’t know if that is even the correct spelling for the word! Presently we are in the planning stages only of our Information Literacy curriculum at ISL in Doha. We are also undergoing dual accreditation with CIS/NEASC so I know we’ve got to get moving with putting some documentation together. Maybe a year from now (which would probably be way too late for you) I could begin to answer some of your queries… Is this collection of feedback from a student’s perspective or adult learners/teachers? I like the section on Personal Ownership of Learning! All the best with your collection of feedback and I hope most of the populous who receive this have a better response than me.
