We’re putting the finishing touches to our Digital Learning and Teaching strategy here in Perth and Kinross. We’ll be at the Scottish Learning Festival this week – 20-21st September at the SECC – to engage in conversation with colleagues across Scotland on their own Digital Learning visions. We’ve made a short video that shares our direction of travel!

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
