The Web of Fear

Iain- You're absolutely right there is innovation going on - what seems to be lacking is the passion and willingness in the industry to engage with change.

Scots have a reputation to make their views known and not stand idly on the sidelines yet, for the Scottish press, that is not to be the case.

Thanks for being one of the few to be shouting from the sidelines.

Dear Mr Gove: Digital skills need to be taught in schools, not just Computer Science

Technology touches all parts of our working lives no matter what the job is. Digital learning should be embedded in every subject and not treated as something that's separate and can be taken as an option.

But no matter how many improvements are made to the curriculum it's the quality of teaching that really matters.

A good teacher can teach anything. If kids can be inspired and excited by what they are taught they will learn better and quicker. I've been impressed with some of the teaching I've seen but there is no dought there is teaching which is truly shocking - there can be vast improvements in this area and everything must be done to ensure we have fantastic quality teachers making learning exciting from a very early age. That is more than half the battle.
