As this is part of the Digital Learning Week, we’re really wanting presentations and conversations which focus on digital learning…with a real emphasis on the *learning*. In other words, not just what digital tools are you using, but why are you using them and what impact are they having on learning in your context.

So, your options are… You can sign up to attend and be prepared to deliver a 7-minute micro presentation. You can sign up to attend and be prepared to deliver a 2-minute nano presentation. You can sign up to attend and lead a learning conversation…you’ll be asked to suggest a discussion question when signing up, please make this related to digital learning. You can ask a question that you’re grappling with yourself, if you are other people will be too. And yes, you can sign up to lead a learning conversation as well as signing up to present you keen bean you. You can sign up to attend…but you’ll still be expected to join right in and share your thoughts and ideas.

Here is a link to the Scottish Ambassadors’ facebook page (you have to ‘like’ it to follow!): https://www.facebook.com/hetrascotland, A virtual learning community where we will be posting events to attend in Scotland, teaching activities and videos, information about the Trust’s 70 voices app with Holocaust Survivor testimonies, information about relevant films and TV programmes on this week as well as our #DontHateCreate facebook campaign:
‘#DontHateCreate is a campaign in Scotland inspired by the cultural legacy of the artists, poets and musicians imprisoned at the Terezin camp in the Holocaust. They showed how hope and human creativity can overcome adversity. Create something related to the Holocaust (eg. Art/song/poem/short-story/photography/graphic-strip/candle/etc.) OR share something already out there which you like. Post it with #DontHateCreate, copy+paste this description and tag 5 friends to raise awareness for Holocaust Memorial Day. Forfeit is to tag 10 friends. Get creative!’
Lastly, this is a 12m video I created back in 2009 with another Ambassador for the Trust, after visiting Auschwitz. It is already shown in some East Renfrewshire and East Dunbartonshire schools, you are welcome to show in your school if you like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pIgYBdKUvo
