Digital Learning Director (Scotland)
Pam was a secondary English teacher and faculty head before the creative digital world captured her heart with the benefits it could offer learning.
A few years at local authority team level led her to national roles in the Glow team at Education Scotland and Scottish Government Digital Learning team before being approached by Tablet Academy to lead the company in Scotland.
“There are so many challenges for schools in making the most of digital for learning and for some bizarre reason I care about that. I genuinely believe that we can use digital tools to make the busy life of school easier and to engage our young people in ways that can only benefit their learning.”
With a passion for web design and the digital skills agenda, Pam has led on a number of innovative Digital learning projects where young people are involved in developing for the web using a hands-on approach that provides real world skills.
Pam has a wealth of experience with Microsoft Office 365 and iPad in education, has recently become a Google Certified Trainer and will lead on VR for Tablet Academy Scotland.
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.
