In Scotland, we have already made significant progress with embedding technologies into everyday learning, however we need to continue to build on this.

That is why the Scottish Government is developing a Technologies for Learning Strategy that will aim to further the use of technology in learning and assessment in a practical and organised way for the benefit of Scotland’s learners and Scotland’s economic growth.

We want to find out more about how technologies are already being used for teaching and learning. If you are a parent/guardian or a teacher/practitioner you can help us by completing a quick and easy, anonymous survey. Your views and opinions will help us with developing the strategy.
