About the event

The Digital Learning and Teaching Strategy for Scotland was published in September 2016. The report outlines how important young people consider the use of digital technologies as a learning, revision and research tool. Equally important is the recognition that it will be the educators who are key to realising the government’s objectives in Education rather than the digital technologies themselves; unless we empower teachers and school staff and equip them with digital skills and confidence to use classroom technology, our children won’t be able to take advantage of the attainment opportunities technology brings.

Join us at Holyrood's 6th annual Learning Through Technology event as we feature a key line-up of speakers who will demonstrate how we can best embed digital technology into school education and assessment, increase the confidence of educators and improve access to technology across Scotland.

Why you should attend:

  • Gain insights into innovative practice putting technology at the heart of teaching and learning
  • Discover new developments in classroom resources and assessment tools that you can use in your school to enhance digital learning
  • Explore the potential of digital teaching and learning to raise attainment
