Wakelet: You asked, we listened!

The responses from many of our webinar evaluation forms told us that practitioners would like to know more about Wakelet, to learn how to effectively save and organise content and learning materials all together in the one place. This interactive PDF file will help you to get started.

We would love to hear how you get on in the future when using Wakelet and welcome you to ‘get involved’ and share a digital learning blog post with the wider community, right here on DigiLearn.Scot!

Green Screen Learning and Teaching. You asked, we listened!

The responses from many of our webinar evaluation forms told us that practitioners would like to learn more about green screen technology and how this can be used to effectively enhance learning and engage learners.  We recently delivered a webinar ‘Evidencing Learning with iMovie’ and have collated a Green Screen Supporting Resources Wakelet, encompassing a collection of tutorials and ideas brought to you by the Digital Skills Team to take forward green screen technology with your learners.

#WeAreDigiLearnScot – Your Community. Your Experiences. Your Stories

Hello future Guest Bloggers!

The DigiLearnScot site hosts a range of information and is an ideal place to find out about webinars, resources and support which is available.

We are now looking for stories to share on the site of how you are using digital technologies to support learning and teaching. These posts can be short and snappy, or can be longer and more in depth depending on the individual story and, whilst not essential, it would be ideal if the posts include pictures, screenshots or links to videos.

The posts will be categorised in a number of ways to make searching for relevant posts easy.  For example, local authority, sector, curriculum/subject area (if appropriate).  Posts will also be collected into a Guest Blog area of the site.

We are very keen to share the superb work happening across Scotland and will promote these posts, once they have been added to the blog.
