The digital technology to support learning in Scottish schools has become more complex in recent years, and that journey continues with a move to online platforms through and alongside Glow. Microsoft 365 and Google Classroom are now very popular across Scotland with learners and teachers being largely positive with the move. Some Councils are delivering their own tenancies out with Glow which increases their capabilities and flexibility but disconnects them with some aspects of national provision.
In the past six months, in response to Covid-19, many schools have also accelerated their move to personal mobile technology, with Chromebooks and iPads a prevalent option. There are huge benefits of this roll out but obvious difficulties in some curricular areas due to platform choice.
The presentation will look to tease out some solutions to the challenges going forward.
