We’ve captured some of the wonderful work that went on during National Digital Learning Week in Perth & Kinross. From early years through to the senior phase, young people are getting the opportunity to interact with learning using digital tools that are meaningful, relevant and engaging. We’ve made some films to give you a sense of the kinds of things that go on across our schools:

The National Digital Learning Week runs from 15-19 May with the theme of #DigitalDifference. Across Perth and Kinross Council(PKC) and nationally throughout the week, you’ll see people sharing and celebrating the digital approaches which make a positive impact on classroom practice.
PKC will be sharing case studies on the small and sometime big steps individual teachers and schools make on their journey with digital learning and teaching tools.
If you are a teacher or school in PKC and would like to share what you have been doing then you can use your website or twitter or your other social media channels to share that with the world. If you add the hashtag #DigitalDifference and tag @PKCEducation into your posts we’ll be able to capture the wide range of activity going on across Perth and Kinross.
You can also contact your Digital Learning and Teaching Officer, Michael Conlon, who could come and film some of your work for sharing: firstname.lastname@example.org

As this site develops we will be curating teacher stories about how they have integrated digital learning into their classroom, that will perhaps give you some new ideas with teachers reporting on the challenges and the successes they faced.
Sharing our experiences and talking about teaching is some of the best professional development you can do for yourself and for others. You’ll gain confidence that there are teachers out there just like you, with a wee idea they tried or an app or site they found useful.
If you have a story to tell about a lesson you taught using digital learning or how digital helps you as a teacher then please contact me below.
