EduTech – Digital Teaching and Learning for Primary & Secondary Schools
3rd November 2020, Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh

Digital is no longer an adjunct to teaching and learning. It has become a fundamental part of how teachers organise learning programmes, communicate with their students, and how students progress through their education. Problem-solving and games-based learning approaches are helping to equip students with the vital skills to ‘code’, but successful primary and secondary schools will increasingly be those that adopt digital first attitudes and culture as part of their pedagogies. Join teachers and education practitioners at the forefront of digital teaching and learning in Scotland for the latest best practice policy and practical guidance.
