Today, the Cambridge Primary Review Trust publishes its latest research report: The Digital Age and its Implications for Learning and Teaching in the Primary School, by Cathy Burnett of Sheffield Hallam University. The report may be downloaded from the CPRT website, and is accompanied by a short briefing which summarises the territory covered and the conclusions and implications to which the evidence points.
The report reviews evidence from 150 published sources relating to five identified traditions that reflect different perspectives on the digital revolution and different priorities arising from these: computing (as in the national curriculum); technology across the curriculum; 21st century skills; participation, learning and digital media; and new literacies.
CPRT has now published nine research reviews and nine research briefings relating to its priorities. More will appear in the autumn. View the full list here.
