Let’s Get Digital at SLF

The Digital team will be at this year’s SLF with an exciting offering of activities available to all delegates across both days.

Visit the Education Scotland Stand

The Education Scotland stand will host a schedule of Digital Literacy and Glow focused drop in sessions available on both days. Digital is about supporting learning and teaching  so we have arranged a timetable of inspirational and practical sessions for you to join in, learn something new and take your experiences back to the classroom.

To allow you to plan ahead we have put together a timetable of activity which will take place on both days. You can find this below.
