Abstract

In November 2014, the State Secretary for Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands officially launched an online country-wide consultation about the future of Dutch education. Based on the outcomes and the ongoing debate, the Netherlands started the development of a new curriculum framework for primary and secondary education in 2018. One of the new themes in this curriculum is Digital Literacy, which is defined as a combination of ICT skills, media literacy, information literacy and computational thinking. Together with the other subjects (Dutch, Arithmetic/mathematics, English/modern foreign languages, Citizenship, Exercise & Sport, Art & Culture, Human & Nature, Human & Society) Digital Literacy will be part of the design of the new curriculum. A teacher design team for Digital Literacy developed a vision and elaborated this in eight so-called big ideas. Based on the big ideas learning trajectories were designed. These learning trajectories describe what students should learn in primary and secondary education.
