Launch Event- schools workshop
The afternoon of the Launch Event allowed for the opportunity to get together and experience a small area of the Digital Commonwealth Project, with a taster of community media cafes, creative writing and the schools project. For the schools workshop fourteen people gathered to discuss ideas for how to make the schools programme work “on the ground”, based around several key questions:
- How do the four Digital Commonwealth chosen themes of people, place, culture and exchange tie in with Curriculum for Excellence and how do these themes tie in with any existing projects which your schools have planned?
- What are the resources and training needs to make the Digital Commonwealth project work for you?
- What do you see as the learner needs and teacher needs for the Digital Commonwealth project?
There was a lot of useful discussion by those who attended which will help us plan the resources and project work planned for the schools programme.
The roving community media cafe reporters captured some of the thoughts of participants in the schools workshop.
The Padlet walls below record the responses made for each of these schools workshop questions, we would like this to be collaborative so you may also comment below in WordPress, and add your contribution to the boards by simply double clicking on the wall. You can also attach weblinks and audio or video to your Padlet comments.
