    As an adult my 'curriculum' is directed by me, my interests and my needs.  As children, younger learners need to have their 'curriculum' scaffolded for them and given the skills to manage this for themselves into adulthood.  As with regular curriculum, a 'digital' curriculum should be centred around a vision for the learner, and his/her needs.  My vision for our learners is to grow as people and learners therefore the curriculum should reflect that... I would be deeply saddened if a 'digital' curriculum was taught and learned entirely in a digital or electronic world.  But would be happy if the qualities of inquiry were reflected in digital citizenship/curriculum.

    So our curriculum, digital or otherwise, should be centred around the values, characteristics or qualities we want for our learners?  This sounds brilliant, I wonder how the digital element can be reflected in the values/qualities we expect for our students.  Does anyone have good examples in their own schools to share (I am sure we all know where they are in the NZC!).

    Nice work Emma - is this along the lines of the 'Intellectual Rigor' line that Tony went down with Nayland?  Did he look at this with you guys at Tahuna?  Smile
