Presentation: Scotland’s story: how curriculum meets
innovation
The new curriculum, developed with the profession and
parents over several years, has ‘allowed’ more teachers to
break with tradition and take up new technologies to
facilitate children’s learning. The curricular moves share
much in common with Canada’s states’ and provinces’, so
what are the similarities and differences in technology,
professional development and the way students learn?

Roundtable: Assessment is for learning and making the links
through new technologies – share experiences from both
sides of the pond.
