Welcome to the Digital Literacy Programme: Intermediate Phase! In this course, we’ll explore the world of digital learning resources and how they can revolutionise teaching, learning, and curriculum delivery. As technology continues to advance, so does our ability to access and utilize a wealth of digital tools and materials to enhance educational experiences.


This course aims to modernize curriculum design and delivery by integrating 21st-century pedagogies and methodologies. By building upon the SACE-accredited capacity building programme initiated by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) and its partners, the main focus is on enhancing your competencies for the future.

The goal is to provide a contextually relevant course that equips you to effectively navigate change and complexity in education, leveraging the potential of digital technologies. Through this online course, we aim to support you in your individual lifelong learning journey and professional development.
