Research and Learning

Hwb is the all Wales Learning Platform aimed at supporting national action in the following areas:

  • encouraging, supporting and preparing teachers to operate in a digital environment and to share their digital practice
  • establishing and developing a system and a national collection for creating, storing and sharing digital resources.

Hwb will host a national collection of digital resources to support teaching and learning for learners aged 3 to 19 in Wales which will be known as the National Digital Repository. The collection will be accessed through multiple channels and will include:

  • resources created or commissioned by the Welsh Government and/or its agents
  • resources licensed or bought by the Welsh Government
  • resources made available by ‘trusted sources’
  • resources created by teachers and learners.

In addition it will offer:

  • consistent treatment of the Intellectual Property Rights for all resources provided to Hwb, with the presumption that Creative Commons Attribution licenses will be applied
  • new approaches to the use of social networking sites in schools (to be supported with guidance).

For more information, please visit the Hwb website.
