Introduction to the Literacy and Numeracy strategy

Literacy and Numeracy Strategy


This presentation, available below, was used at the beginning of the national seminar day in which we looked at the background to the Literacy and Numeracy Strategy. In it, we explored the implications of the Strategy for all members of the school community for this school year and beyond to 2012-13. 


Several video clips were used at the seminar which may be useful at Staff Meetings, Parents' Association or Board of Management meetings. Two of these video clips explore the definitions of Literacy and Numeracy and these are available on the homepage. The first video clip on this page looks at student collaborative learning through problem-solving in project maths. The second video clip steps outside the classroom and examines collaboration between teachers and with parents.

The reflective diary provided at the start of this session, and available below, was used as a tool for identifying the good practice already in schools and the potential for future development.
