National Digital Learning Week 2019

National Digital Learning week is back. This year the event will take place from Monday 13 to Friday 17 May.

For the fifth annual National Digital Learning Week, all early learning and childcare centres and schools across Scotland are invited to take part in five curriculum focused challenges in STEM, Social Studies, Expressive Arts, Literacy and Numeracy.

To ensure all teachers are fully supported to take part, Education Scotland has developed a package of materials including activity suggestions and ‘how to’ guides.

Schools that share their work are in with a chance of winning some exclusive Glow goodies. Simply tag @digilearnscot on Twitter and use #NDLW19 or upload directly on the dedicated National Digital Glow Blog. Visit the blog for more information and to get started with the challenges.

This two-minute video tells you everything you need to know. Watch, share and get involved.

#STEMmeetup with Robotical

Robotical and Marty the Robot joined us for a fantastic CLPL session!

Discussions started with ‘what is a robot?’ before turning to developing our understanding of the importance of STEM skills for our learners.  Followed up by teachers getting hands on with their robots and coding short routines using Scratch.

Thanks also to one of our own CEC teachers who contributed to the session by outlining the work of Victoria Primary and their Building Body Parts STEM project.

Can’t wait to see our teachers put their learning into practice!
