Spend the day with Scotland's leading educationalists and technology experts 

Why Attend

Digital teaching and learning pedagogies have been fundamental to the continuity of education during lockdown. As schools across the country shut down, teachers turned to technology in order to maintain contact with pupils.. More than 12 months since the first wave of Covid-19 and remote and blended digital teaching and learning models have now bedded into everyday practice, with confidence and expertise growing in digital delivery.

At EduTech 2021, some of the leaders of national efforts to initiate live and recorded activities – supplemented by a growing range of online resources - will share some of their lessons from lockdown and how they might shape the future of education in Scotland. With a new National e-Learning Offer (NeLO), and a nationwide inspection programme of local efforts helping to benchmark success, a framework has emerged that is consolidating digital teaching and learning practice.

Necessity is the mother of invention, and EduTech 2021 will showcase some of the post-Covid innovations in platforms and practice, both at home and from international exemplars. Join us as we also discuss how the education sector responds to tech entrepreneur Mark Logan’s recommendations to boost digital skills and position Scotland as a world-class tech ecosystem.
