Here are a few final images from our visit to the SLF this week and some feedback from a few guests. The Festival attracted around 4000 delegates this year with representatives from each local authority across Scotland as well as delegates from around the globe including Australia, Denmark, Norway and Finland to name but a few. Our Dunoon pupils proved themselves more than capable of running the stand and over the two days they impressed hundreds of visitors with their confidence, knowledge and learning. Well done to Reece for winning a mascot teddy bear for SAL by guessing the correct name and a huge THANK YOU to all involved from the SAL team back at base.
Dr James Fanning, Head of Emerging Technologies, Education Scotland said “Thanks to your students for demonstrating your work to me. They were great and really explained well the ways in which they were using the technology to support their learning.”
