National Digital Learning Week 2018 dates announced
What is National Digital Learning Week?
NDLW is an annual Education Scotland event where teachers and learners from all schools in Scotland are encouraged to take part in digital learning and teaching activities.
Last year’s event saw 436 activities take place in over 200 Primary schools, 160 Secondary Schools and 4 special schools across 5 days.
When will NDLW 2018 take place?
National Digital Learning Week 2018 (NDLW 18) will take place 14 – 18 May.
What is the focus for NDLW 2018?
The 2018 event will be celebrating the Year of Young People, a Scottish Government initiative which gives Young People a stronger voice on issues which affect their lives, showcase their ideas and talents, and ultimately, aim to challenge status quo and create a more positive perception of them in society.
Digital technology is an integral part of the lives of our children and young people.
It is estimated that around 90% of jobs across the UK require an element of digital skills and we must take steps to ensure that we equip our children and young people to prepare them for life beyond school years.
There are many examples of digital technology being used in classrooms across the country to enhance learning and teaching and National Digital Learning Week 2018 is the perfect opportunity showcase this.
How can you get involved?
There will be a schedule of events available for all levels and abilities to help inspire ideas for activities throughout the week. Look out for an announcement after Easter with more details about this. In the meantime save the 14 – 18 May in your school diary and start having a think about how you can use digital to make a difference.
