The workshop will be held in Delhi from Feb. 17-19. Four candidates will then be selected as 'Digital Literacy Champions' to undertake staff development for a week-long workshop in Scotland" .
He added "The training programme at Edinburgh has been designed to introduce a range of different digital tools, productivity software and digital communication methods.It will introduce educational practitioners to the concepts and contexts of digital literacy and support them in developing their own practice".
The four teachers after their training in Scotland, will assist DU teachers in delivering the course to students at the Campus of Open Learning. The 'Digital Literacy ' course will cover areas such as planning, e-pedagogical issues, sharing of professional practices, encouraging teachers to be enterprising with their ideas and facilitating aspects of global citizenship.
