The use of digital technologies outside of schools and learning at school has often been featured as a topic in the media and by social commentators. This week's research review returns to the theme of connectedness between the school and the home, especially in the context of digital literacy learning and practice. A research report by Futurelab in the UK about 'the connections and discontinuities between children's digital literacy practices at home and in school' analyses the information provided by teachers and students in two primary and two secondary schools. The report titled Connecting digital literacy between home and school provides four very rich case studies describing the views of teachers towards the use of ICT in the curriculum and student practices using ICT. The case studies are an absolute delight to read and give insights into the practices and beliefs of teachers about the use of ICT in the curriculum.
