Holyrood's 7th annual Learning Through Technology conference developed into a forum for everyone involved in planning and delivering education in Scotland, from primary schools to universities. Thanks to our terrific range of speakers, plenary sessions and interactive breakouts, delegates were able to discover the latest developments in terms of technology-enhanced and digital learning and teaching and connect with colleagues, experts and providers.

We would like to thank everyone who attended and supported this event.

Please take a minute to view a selection of testimonials from attendees of previous Learning Through Technology events. 

Event overview

Session one: Learning Through Technology in Scotland: Stepping into the Future

The integration of technology into our lives has changed the way that we work, live and play, and how we deliver education must change in response. This opening session will explore the future of technology in education and the challenges of delivering this vision.

Session two: Themed Sessions

In a series of themed interactive sessions, delegates had the opportunity to explore areas of interest with experts.

Session three: Attainment Through Technology

Raising educational attainment is high on the political agenda. In this session we looked at two fundamental parts of curriculum for excellence, literacy and numeracy, and explored the role of technology in enhancing these abilities.

Session four: Practice In Action

In this final session we showcased how technology is being embedded in classrooms around the country through a series of interactive case studies.
