Collaborating via digital technology - Zoom

In April 2019, the Minister of Education issued a Digital Competency Framework designed to develop our digital skills. This framework is defined by a set of skills necessary to the confident, critical and creative use of digital technologies to achieve objectives with regard to learning. The framework comprises 12 dimensions of digital competency.

You will also be able to schedule meetings, invite people to them, and save a recording of a session on your computer.
