Innovation Centre for Education Launch

On Friday 21st of April the Digital Learning Team launched the Innovation Centre for Education.

The centre was put together in collaboration with CGI and XMA. It showcases digital technology available to schools through the refresh with CGI, as well as devices that can be purchased through other suppliers. The items on show include apps and accessories for iPad, Virtual Reality headsets, programmable toys, laptops and desktops.

Guests at the launch included representatives from Edinburgh schools, CGI, XMA, Apple and Edinburgh Council. They had the opportunity to find out the aims for the centre and how it was created, they also had a chance to try out all the kit in the room and chat to the Digital Learning Team.

The Innovation Centre will soon be opening for schools in Edinburgh to book a visit. This will provide an opportunity to try out the available technology and work on the digital strategy for schools, with the support from the DLT. Schools will be informed when they are able to book sessions.

We would like to thank CGI, XMA and Edinburgh Council in their support with this project.

  1. Good afternoon

    We are running a CAT session at the end of May on Sharepoint. We are wondering if it would be possible for a team from our school to come down to the innovation centre before then. Do you know the likely dates it will be available for staff?

    Kind regards
