Learning Resources


Welcome to the Digital Learning section of SALi!  The Digital Learning Team supports teachers, school staff and pupils throughout Argyll and Bute in the use of technology in education.  The team also runs exciting extracurricular workshops at the Digital Hub in Dunoon, such as: creating video games with Kodu and Scratch; programming with the BBC micro:bit; using robots and drones; and we’ve even recreated the Dunoon Burgh Hall in Minecraft: Education Edition!

Below, you can find information on using digital technologies (which can be loaned from the Digital Learning Team) to create engaging activities and workshops.  You can also find useful resources and view feedback from the Digital Leaders and STEM events we have held.
