Social media “Who Dunnit” for S1 classes

Small - Like?A social media “Who Dunnit” for S1 classes – 4 friends + 4 phones = What could possibly go wrong?

This interactive drama, along with accompanying lesson materials for teachers, was produced by Forth Valley Health Board’s inTER-ACT team (with support from Falkirk Community Trust and Education Scotland) and was piloted with some pupils in Falkirk Council.

The ‘Who Dunnit’ drama centres around four actors playing the roles of S1 friends and their use of mobile phones and social media – “what could possibly go wrong!” The interactive drama (presented online as a series of soap-style dramas interspersed with audience responses) is imaginatively fluid to provide for the drama to unfold in different ways depending on the reactions and feedback from their audience. The whole package provides a powerful way to explore the issues around pupil use of mobile devices and social media.

Promoting Digital Careers – IBM

Small- Promoting Digital CareersJoin two IBM apprentices Andrew Logan and Heather Craig and IBM Scotland Software Group Leader Gillian Docherty to find out more about their careers.

Technology is embedded in our everyday life, from Social Media and Online Commerce to digital engagement as citizens through to advancements in cognitive computing and artificial intelligence every individual and every sector is impacted by technology. New organisations worth Billions never existed 10 years ago, companies are disappearing as they have not transformed and utilised technology to stay ahead of the competition. Scotland has a huge skill shortage and recruits over 9500 individuals a year into technology roles, these range from Digital Marketing, Social Media Champions, Cyber Security Experts and Developers. We do not have enough candidates to fill these roles and therefore it is critical for the industry to ensure we attract those young individuals at school to think about joining our industry and making a difference.

During the Glow TV session the presenters will:
– talk about how they joined IBM
– talk about what they do in their day to day jobs
– talk about what they enjoy about what they do and how it impacts their clients and the world we live in
