On 21 September 2016 Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, John Swinney launched the ‘Digital Schools Awards’, a national awards programme which promotes, recognises and encourages best practice use of digital technology in primary schools.
The Digital Schools Award recognizes best practice and builds on the progress already made, by providing a pathway and resources for schools seeking to do more with digital technology. The programme also recognises those who achieve excellence and supports the efforts of schools, teachers and learners in making the best use of digital technology in the classroom.
Schools that achieve excellence will be awarded ‘Digital Schools’ status recognised by Education Scotland.
