About

ELC Logo ECS PMS 301 rgbEdubuzz is a learning network for learners in East Lothian, Scotland.

It opens a window onto education in East Lothian schools not just for parents and the community, but for staff and students to see what’s happening beyond their own classroom and school.

It was originally conceived as a website to stimulate contact between teachers, as well as providing access to information and ideas.

 

Technology

The eduBuzz Learning Network consists of a shared network of web sites (blogs) used by all 6 secondary schools and the associated primary and nursery schools.

It uses WordPress Multisite software, and is hosted on dxw’s WordPress Platform.  It uses a dxw plugin to display a continuous Activity Stream on the home page. The activity stream enables visitors to quickly catch up on what is being published around the community.

One thought on “About”

  1. Dear Edubuzz team,
    I thought you might be interested in Scotland’s Enterprising Schools, a new resource available for schools to inspire enterprising and entrepreneurial learning across the curriculum. The resource was developed in partnership with Education Scotland and the Scottish Government and key features include:
    • Practitioners have the opportunity to join the professional learning network where they can take part in discussions about enterprise education and collaborate with colleagues to share ideas and resources.
    • A professional reflection tool helps practitioners gauge where their school is on its enterprise journey and will support the self-evaluation process.
    • The resources and ideas highlighted will be very useful when curriculum planning and will help schools embed Building the Curriculum 4 and Developing the Young Workforce agendas as part of their development plans.
    • Any number of teachers from your school can join the professional learning community and members of the network will receive an “Enterprising Schools Proud Member” badge for use on the school website

    You will be aware that the newly introduced Career Education Standard (3-18), as part of the Developing the Young Workforce, has enterprise/entrepreneurship embedded throughout and I hope you and your staff will find Scotland’s Enterprising Schools a tool to support you.
    Please contact me if you would like any further information and please feel free to share the link with your network.
    Kind regards, Anne
