We are entering a new phase in learning and with a Government committed to the use of technology to boost skills but also address the attainment gap. The Scottish Government has further made clear its priority to close the attainment gap as illustrated by its £120m Pupil Equity Funding allowing individual schools to target support where it’s needed most.
Among the many challenges – but also opportunities – for Scotland’s educators today is how to best harness the range of technologies now available and how to use them to enhance the learning experience.
Join us for our Autumn EduTech 2017 conference, where leading experts will discuss how the latest technology can help engage pupils, enhance the learning experience and encourage innovative new approaches to teaching, inside as well as outside the classroom
With the continued integration of technology into the school curriculum, Autumn EduTech 2017 will, through a range of plenary sessions and workshops, explore and debate the developments surrounding the use of technology to facilitate effective instruction and learning, including discussion on:
