Informed Scotland Technologies at Work Special

We’re delighted to publish an Informed Scotland Technologies at Work Special.

It was commissioned by Education Scotland to support the publication of their report, Building Society: Young people’s experiences and outcomes in the technologies, launched on 9 March 2015.

At the launch in March, Bill Maxwell, Chief Executive of Education Scotland said, ‘We want our young people to be fully equipped for a world which is changing, educationally, economically and socially, at an unprecedented rate.

Technologies at Work highlights ideas, issues, projects and resources from across the learning and skills landscape. It makes connections between subject areas, between education and business sectors, and between the economy and learning. It aims to help business and schools identify and make the most of the common objectives and synergies of the technologies and Developing Young Workforce initiatives.

Sandra Cairncross, Edinburgh Napier University’s Dean of Engineering, Computing & Creative Industries, says, ‘Creative problem solvers who understand technology are key to Scotland’s future economic success. We must grow and develop an interest from early years onwards’.

Education Scotland encourages those across education, business and the wider community to use this Informed Scotland Special, ‘recognising the important bridge the technologies provides between the communities of school and work’.
