Social Studies and Digital Technologies Day
organised by Education Scotland
Date: 21st March 2015
Time: 9:30 – 3:00
Venue: Stirling Management Centre, Stirling
Places: 40 – open to all primary and secondary practitioners
This is an excellent CLPL opportunity to refresh and learn new approaches to integrating ICT and Technologies through Social Studies.
There will be three exciting keynote speakers in the morning, followed by an afternoon session with a choice of three interactive workshops.
A complete programme for the day and the opportunity to book a place will be published in early February.
Glow Product Owner Ian Stewart is looking for teachers to come together and start developing multimedia textbooks based on OneNote. In his very own Glow blog, Ian explains:
“I am aiming at these at the National Courses as this is an immediate pressure point for lots of teachers. Several primary colleagues have said they would be interested but it’s not aimed at them.
They are right, what I have in mind is not aimed at them but if there is something they would like to develop one on (a particular topic, for example the Vikings). Why not join us and learn how to develop a notebook for this purpose, or as my wife says, keep us right.
This is a start, not a one off. This start will be in Microsoft Scotland’s Office in Edinburgh. On Saturday 31st January, we are looking to welcome people from 9 am with a kick off time at 9.30 with the space available till 4.30.
Ideally we want people to work together to form groups and set targets for themselves. I would hope these groups will continue to develop the Notebooks.
Also arrange more of these hackdays in different parts of the country.
Are you interested? Sign up on the Office 365 Spreadsheet (Glow login required). Speak to your colleagues and friends.
If you can’t make it on the day, that’s ok. You can join in online as the work continues.
The start of an exciting year.”
