Get inspired online on National Digital Learning Week 2017

National Digital Learning Week 2017 (15-19 May) begins today with the theme of ‘Digital Difference’

It’s crucial we encourage our young people to discover and enjoy the online world as a place to lead their own enriched learning experiences. But what opportunities are there for educators to do the same? Do you have a go-to website for accessing professional learning activities, resources and up-to-date research? We hope we can help with that.

Earlier this month, we relaunched the SCEL Framework for Educational Leadership – the digital key to unlocking your leadership potential – with a host of new features which will make your professional learning experience even richer.

The Framework is free for all teachers and leaders of early learning in Scotland and access is easier than ever as you can now login with your Glow account.

The ability to record and export a summary of your learning as evidence of your professional development is a brand-new feature of the relaunched Framework, and is a highly useful tool in supporting Professional Review and Development (PRD). This summary captures your learning in relation to relevant General Teaching Council for Scotland (GTCS) and Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) professional standards and can easily be uploaded to online PRD systems.

As part of #NDLW17 we’ll be sharing stories of educators who are using the Framework to make a digital difference in their own professional learning as well as their classrooms and stay tuned for a brand-new learning activity with a focus on leading a digital learning strategy.

We’d love to know your thoughts on the relaunched SCEL Framework for Educational Leadership. Why not share what you think on Twitter using the #digitaldifference hashtag?

Whether you’ve engaged with a learning activity or discovered more about leading digital learning, it would be great to hear your stories.
