Scotland's new Curriculum for Excellence aims to bring breadth, challenge and relevance back to the classroom. At the same time, technology is now an unstoppable force in society. At Cedars School of Excellence, we are committed to finding the best ways to integrate technology into teaching and learning.
This talk will present the decision-making process that led to Cedars School of Excellence becoming the first in the world to deploy one-to-one iPads throughout the school. It will discuss the early impact of these devices and share insights into Cedars' view of the future of teaching and learning with technology in K-12 through Curriculum for Excellence.
