#EduTechScot Conference 2017


Conference panel for Digital Schools Awards

The Scottish Government’s STEM Education and Training strategy points to the important role STEM Education & Training has to play if we are to fully realise aspirations for all children and young people to have the skills and confidence needed to work, contribute and live in a technologically-advanced and digitally-inclusive society.

Aimed at teachers and education professionals, the delegate-focused event featured 9 interactive workshops and keynotes from some of the foremost international digital learning experts. I was delighted to present to delegates on the Digital Schools Awards Scotland. The conference offered an opportunity for leaders to reflect on what can be done to help Scotland address its attainment gap and how digital can be used as part of a STEM learning toolkit. EduTech 2017 is focused on results so the conference will be given national visibility through a full report featured in The Times Scotland.

For now, here are a few photographs of my session, and a link to the event Storify narrative.
