  • Cyfathrebu / Literacy


    Sgiliau Llythrennedd

    Mae datblygu sgiliau cyfathrebu dysgwyr yn rhan bwysig o rôl pawb sy'n gweithio ym maes Addysg Ôl-16. Boed dysgwyr ar raglenni cyn-mynediad i'w paratoi ar gyfer bywyd yn y gymuned, rhaglenni galwedigaethol a fydd yn eu galluogi i gamu'n uniongyrchol i fyd gwaith, neu raglenni academaidd sy'n darparu llwybr i addysg uwch, bydd wastad angen iddynt ddatblygu eu sgiliau a'u galluoedd wrth gyfathrebu ag eraill.

    Bydd yr adnoddau a geir yma yn cefnogi datblygiad y sgiliau hynny, yn ogystal â chefnogi addysgu cymwysterau newydd; TGAU Cymraeg a Saesneg; Sgiliau Cyfathrebu Hanfodol a Bagloriaeth Cymru. Byddant yn ddefnyddiol i bawb sy'n addysgu neu'n cefnogi datblygiad sgiliau sy'n ategu'r holl gymwysterau hyn. 

                  

    Literacy Skills

    Developing learners’ communication skills is an important part of the role of all who work in Post16 Education. Whether learners are on pre-entry programmes to prepare them for life in the community, vocational programmes that will enable them to progress directly into work, or academic programmes providing a route to higher education, there will be always be a need for them to develop their skills and abilities in communicating with others.

    The resources found in this area are to support the development of those skills as well to support the teaching of the new qualifications; GCSE Welsh and English; Essential Communication Skills and Welsh Baccalaureate. They will be useful for all who teach or support the development of the skills that underpin all of these qualifications.


  • Rhifedd / Numeracy



    Rhifedd

    Rydym yn defnyddio mathemateg ym mhob agwedd ar ein bywydau yn y gwaith ac mewn gweithgareddau ymarferol o ddydd i ddydd, gartref a'r tu hwnt. Rydym yn defnyddio mathemateg pan fyddwn yn mynd i siopa neu'n trefnu gwyliau, yn penderfynu ar forgais neu'n addurno ystafell. Mae rhifedd da yn hanfodol i ni fel rhieni i helpu ein plant i ddysgu, fel cleifion i ddeall gwybodaeth iechyd, ac fel dinasyddion i wneud synnwyr o ystadegau a newyddion economaidd. Yn aml iawn mae penderfyniadau mewn bywyd yn cael eu seilio ar wybodaeth rifyddol; i wneud y dewisiadau gorau mae angen i ni fod yn rhifog. 

                   

    Numeracy

    We use maths in every aspect of our lives at work and in practical everyday activities at home and beyond. We use maths when we go shopping or plan a holiday, decide on a mortgage or decorate a room. Good numeracy is essential to us as parents helping our children learn, as patients understanding health information, as citizens making sense of statistics and economic news. Decisions in life are so often based on numerical information; to make the best choices, we need to be numerate



    (Pam mae rhifedd yn bwysig?

    Bydd yr adnoddau a geir yma yn cefnogi datblygiad y sgiliau hynny, yn ogystal â chefnogi addysgu'r cymwysterau newydd; TGAU Mathemateg a TGAU Mathemateg - Rhifedd; Cymhwysiad Hanfodol Sgiliau Rhifau a Bagloriaeth Cymru. Byddant yn ddefnyddiol i bawb sy'n addysgu neu'n cefnogi datblygiad sgiliau sy'n ategu'r holl gymwysterau hyn.

  • Llythrennedd Digidol / Digital Literacy


    Llythrennedd Digidol

    Bydd Sgiliau Llythrennedd Digidol yn galluogi’r dysgwyr i ddatblygu a dangos dealltwriaeth a hyfedredd y mae cyflogwyr ac addysgwyr y cam nesaf yn eu gwerthfawrogi ac sydd eu hangen ar ddysgwyr er mwyn perfformio a symud ymlaen yn effeithiol yn eu haddysg, eu gwaith a’u bywyd.

    Mae chwe elfen i Sgiliau Llythrennedd Digidol Hanfodol:

    1. Cyfrifoldeb Digidol
    2. Cynhyrchiant Digidol
    3. Llythrennedd Gwybodaeth Ddigidol
    4. Cydweithio Digidol
    5. Creadigrwydd Digidol
    6. Dysgu Digidol

     

    Nid oes yn rhaid defnyddio meddalwedd neu galedwedd penodol. Yn hytrach, mae ffocws ar ddefnyddio technoleg ddigidol i ddatrys problemau yn y byd go iawn a chwblhau tasgau bob dydd. Dylai’r problemau a’r tasgau hyn annog meddwl yn feirniadol, gyda phwyslais ar greadigrwydd a chydweithio, gan adeiladu ar Sgiliau Cyflogadwyedd. Ni ddylid ystyried pob elfen yn ddarn o waith ar ei ben ei hun. Wrth i’r gwaith gael ei ddatblygu, drwy ddulliau integredig a chyfannol, daw’n fwy eglur bod llawer o gyfleoedd i gwmpasu’r ystod o sgiliau ym maes llythrennedd digidol; bydd rhai’n digwydd yn naturiol, a bydd eraill yn galw am arddangos a chymhwyso sgiliau a gwybodaeth penodol.

     

              

    Digital Literacy 

    Digital Literacy Skills will enable learners to develop and demonstrate an understanding of and proficiency that employers and next-stage educators value and that learners need for effective performance and progression in learning, work and life.

    Essential Digital Literacy Skills consist of six strands:

    1. Digital Responsibility 
    2. Digital Productivity 
    3. Digital Information Literacy
    4. Digital Collaboration
    5. Digital Creativity
    6. Digital Learning 


    Use of any specific software or hardware is not mandated, instead there is a focus on using digital technology to solve real-world problems and complete everyday tasks. These problems and tasks should encourage critical thinking, with an emphasis on creativity and collaboration, thus building upon Employability Skills.  Each strand should not be viewed as a stand-alone piece of work. As work is developed, through integrated and holistic approaches, it will become clear that there are many opportunities to cover the range of skills within digital literacy; some will occur naturally, others will require a specific demonstration and application of skills and knowledge.
