Throughout #digilearnscot week (as on most weeks in schools in Dumfries & Galloway Council), young learners use technology as an integral part of their learning.
On Monday and Tuesday, 6 primary schools will be involved in science lessons via video conference with Heather Reid at the Glasgow Science Centre. This is now their third year of working with Heather in this way. The learners are from the following schools; Castle Douglas, Sanquhar, Dunscore, Penpont, Glenluce and Closeburn. Here’s a wee flavour from last year’s learning…
Over the last decade, Dumfries and Galloway Council have also developed a programme video conferencing for music lessons. Throughout this week there will be woodwind and brass lessons for schools such as Stranraer Academy, Langholm and Canonbie.
Educators and learners in Dumfries and Galloway are hoping to capture a flavour of this learning for the Digilearn Wiki!
