Learning Through Technology

Sciennes was delighted to be invited to present at the Learning Through Technology Roadshow at Dynamic Earth on Wednesday 3rd October. Ms Gallagher, Ms French and Mrs Barker gave a presentation on our experiences of using 1:1 Mobile Technology, as part of a national pilot.

“Lucy Gallagher is Depute Head Teacher at Sciennes Primary School and has worked as an ICT Development Officer for City of Edinburgh Council. Sciennes` experience with mobile technology dates back to 2006 as a pilot school for the innovative Learning Hubs project. 1:1 school and home use of iPad technology has been implemented with two classes since April 2012, as part of a national pilot. Wendy French and Fiona Barker continue to pioneer exciting use of iPads with their P6 and P7 classes,  facilitating high quality learning and teaching. At Sciennes we consider deployment of the iPad within the 1:1 model to be `The Gold Standard.`”
