Earlier this year I was working with Scottish Government on a small project that aimed to document the developing narrative around teaching and learning in Scottish schools in relation to the increasing presence of tablet devices, BYOD and wi-fi networks in our schools. Here are some links to posts I wrote about a school, where the culture of learning in a digitally connected world is hugely valued and embedded in the life of learning and teaching within the school. Here are some posts that I think really do show how their work is helping prepare learners for the transition from school to life beyond that: 1. Depute Head Teacher discusses the vision and rationale for the school's approach to using digital tools: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/learningwithdevices/?p=492 2. Student perspective on using digital tools to support and enhance their learning and in particular why they see Twitter as integral to their life as a learner: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/learningwithdevices/?p=499 3.Student perspective on how tools such as blogs, YouTube etc allow them to create their own learning/revision resource that can be shared with a global audience whilst enhancing their understanding of the content of the subject AND making them better learners: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/glowblogs/learningwithdevices/?p=458 I was hugely impressed with what I saw at this school. Such practice will not grow unless there is the leadership that understands, values and is prepared to seriously reflect on the way in which digital tools, communities and cultures can play a transformative role in the learning and teaching process.
