Digital skills: Traditional teaching 'not thrown out'

Students need to learn digital skills in school to help them be more employable in the future, the education secretary has said.

Kirsty Williams launched the Digital Competence Framework on Wednesday in order for pupils to be able to use technology effectively.

The scheme, which includes learning on iPads, has been fast-tracked.

But she stopped short of saying the Welsh Government had been slow in rolling out such a programme.

She also denied a suggestion from an OECD global study which suggested investing heavily in school computers and classroom technology does not improve pupils performance.
