Would you like to enhance your skills, knowledge and confidence in early level digital skills and digital literacy?If the answer is ‘yes’ then our summer term ELC practitioner digital meet ups can help you.

The Digital Skills Team at Education Scotland are offering weekly meet up session to discuss various digital topics within the context of ELC.

Each week, a video in relating to the weekly topic will be added to this page, so that you can familiarise yourself with the discussion topic content and information before attending the meet up session. The videos can also be accessed earlier, via the Eventbrite sign up form.

It is a good idea to watch prior the videos before joining the meet up to ensure you have had time to become familiar with the information and perhaps try out some of the suggested activities prior to the meet up.

During the meet up, we will recap the key points from the video, have the opportunity to share thoughts, ask questions and discuss how learning can be taken forward in your own contexts.

The meet ups are for all practitioners working in the early learning and childcare sector in Scotland, based in an ELC setting, school, private/voluntary/independent settings and childminders.

The meet up sessions will be held in a Microsoft Teams meeting, via a join link that will be emailed to you once you have signed up through Eventbrite. You do not require a Glow log in to join.
