Welsh teachers encouraged to embrace digital learning

11/06/2013 Kelly
A major new initiative is being launched by the Welsh government in an effort to highlight the benefits of digital learning.

The National Digital Learning Event and Awards will take place on June 20th and its main aim will be to raise the profile of the practice to those employed in the education sector.   

Tim Rylands - a primary school teacher with over 25 years' experience - is going to be one of the guest speakers at the event, while award-winning ICT expert Russell Prue is also attending. 

Education minister Leighton Andrews said digital technology has to become "part of the teaching and learning experience in Wales". 

He is urging all teaching professionals to attend the event and find out how they can introduce technology into their classrooms - improving pupils' overall experience in the process. 

Moreover, Mr Andrews added it is an opportunity for teachers to converse with other professionals about best practice.
