TRANSFORMING LEARNING AND TEACHING
MAKING THE MOST OF DIGITAL TOOLS IN EDUCATION
Our aim is to support education institutions to transform learning and teaching and revolutionise the way they work by embracing the opportunities mobile and digital technologies offer.
The pace of change has been rapid and it is clear that we were unable to predict just how transformative mobile devices and cloud services would be. Schools need help.
The world is facing a digital skills crisis and schools will need considerable support over the coming years if we are to meet the demands of the jobs market in developing digital skills in our current and future workforce.
MEET OUR CORE TEAMOur wider team includes over 25 experienced educators including SEN and curriculum specialists.
Pam’s vision for Tablet Academy Scotland has always been to provide first class digital learning and teaching support and innovative learning experiences that have impact. Never a fan of one-off CPD sessions, we did them in the early days but Pam always said that she wanted to find a better way. Our Ask Projects and Digital Ninjas work has become that better way. In classes and around schools on a regular basis, they see us support schools in and outwith the classroom, working with learners to give them challenges and real life projects and collaborating with them online to deliver. “Look guys. It’s going to be more like work than school doing this project” Pam will say to the excited young Ninja teams ready to take on development projects. The kids love our Pam and their teachers are always delighted to see them so engaged in learning and keen to solve problems and help each other. The educators are delighted to take a supportive role and get hands-on, in-practice CPD without the need to find supply cover or time to try things out later. It just works. firstname.lastname@example.org
