The National Digital Learning Forum was launched at the Scottish Learning Festival 2014.Education Scotland approached a wide number of representative groups to ask for nominations to a range of Curriculum Learning Teaching Assessment & Support (CLTAS) forums, including the NDLF. The group meet quarterly.


The purpose of the National Digital Learning Forum (NDLF) is to act as a group exploring, evaluating and recommending approaches to digital learning and teaching.

With the help of practitioners, NDLF aims to achieve the following:

  • Support and contribute to the implementation of the National Digital Learning and Teaching Strategy
  • Identify examples of practice where outcomes for learners have been improved, and share these appropriately
  • Provide opportunities (through NDLF events) for a range of stakeholders to agree actions to embed, sustain and maintain the relevance of digital learning
  • Produce clear communications and engagement channels for stakeholders
  • Use evidence from research, conversations and events with stakeholders to underpin the actions of the NDLF to effect change
  • Evaluate the impact of the NDLF though evidence that shows its actions are leading to improved outcomes for all learners.
