Update on Digital Learning and Teaching Strategy Consultation
In September, the Scottish Government and Education Scotland launched a public consultation on the development of a new Digital Learning and Teaching Strategy for Scotland, and we invited everyone with an interest to participate.
If you have not yet submitted a response, we encourage you to do so – your input would be valuable and welcome. The consultation is open for another four weeks, until Thursday 17 December 2015. You can find the consultation document and full details on how you can participate at the Scottish Government’s consultation hub.
Spaces are also still available to attend face-to-face consultation events, which provide opportunities for deeper dialogue and discussion about the key themes and priorities for action outlined in the consultation document.
In addition, to help inform and support development of the strategy, today the Scottish Government has published the findings of a literature review exploring the impact of digital technology on learning and teaching. The review has found evidence that digital learning and teaching has the potential to have a positive impact on outcomes for learners in a variety of ways, including conclusive evidence that the effective use of digital technology can help to raise educational attainment.
We look forward to hearing your views about how this potential can be unlocked for all children and young people in Scotland.
