Evaluation of the implementation of the Learning in Digital Wales Programme

Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 4 October 2016
The evaluation considers how the Learning in Digital Wales Programme (LIDWP) was implemented across Wales and considers whether the programme has met its aims and objectives.

Findings are based on a programme of fieldwork undertaken in 2015 seeking the views of key stakeholders across Wales on how the LIDWP was implemented. The report considers all elements of the LIDWP including the infrastructure grant, Hwb and Hwb+ websites and the training offered. 

Note

Please note that since the publication of this report, an issue with the way that the data on ‘Hwb+ logins’ was gathered has been brought to the attention of the Welsh Government. This has been identified as an issue because of the way that Hwb+ platform operates.

Hwb+ logins are the count of users per device or browser. A user login is only counted once per device until the device cache is cleared. School (and Local Authority) systems usually clear a device cache every 30 days. The Hwb+ login  metric is therefore likely to underestimate the actual number of Hwb+ logins given that students and teachers may share devices at school or use the same device repeatedly within the 30 day period.  It also makes it impossible to compare usage month on month due to the way users interact with devices in schools.
