Smart teach­ing in lo­cal schools

Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

A dig­i­tal ed­u­ca­tion strat­egy has been launched in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang schools.

Coun­cil­lors on an ed­u­ca­tion com­mit­tee were yes­ter­day, Tues­day, given an up­date on the ini­tia­tive, which was launched last month.

They heard that school pupils and adult learn­ers were “in an ideal po­si­tion to gain the nec­es­sary dig­i­tal skills that can help pre­pare them for an ever chang­ing world.”

The strat­egy is de­signed to com­ply with the Scot­tish Govern­ment’s pol­icy on ICT in learn­ing, which says learn­ers, par­ents and ed­u­ca­tors should take full ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­ni­ties cre­ated by tech­nol­ogy.

A re­port to coun­cil­lors read: “The dig­i­tal ed­u­ca­tion strat­egy will sup­port schools, es­tab­lish­ments and ser­vices in ad­dress­ing a key as­pect of the cur­ricu­lum for ex­cel­lence.

“The strat­egy has a strong fo­cus on de­vel­op­ing the dig­i­tal skills re­quired as a means of en­gag­ing, chal­leng­ing and mo­ti­vat­ing all learn­ers in or­der to in­crease their lev­els of achieve­ment.”
