Thank you to everyone for their interest in the public consultation on the development of a Digital Learning and Teaching Strategy for Scotland. We hope that those who were able to attend one of our face-to-face consultation events found the experience useful – the discussions have been productive and will be valuable to development of a final strategy.
There is still time to submit a formal consultation response if you have not yet done so – the consultation is open to all and runs for another two weeks, closing on Thursday 17 December. You can read the consultation document published by the Scottish Government and Education Scotland and find details on how you can respond at our consultation hub.
To help inform and support development of the strategy, a literature review was commissioned by the Scottish Government to explore the impact of digital technology on learning and teaching. The review has found evidence that digital learning and teaching has the potential to support improved outcomes for learners in a variety of ways, including conclusive evidence that the effective use of digital technology can help to raise educational attainment. The full report is available online.
We hope you will continue to be involved and share your views on how we can work together to unlock this potential for all Scotland’s children and young people.
