“Informed Scotland provides a very valuable service with information on forthcoming Professional Learning events throughout Scotland. There are lots of useful events in their listings that I only found out about through their Calendar.”

“Everyone involved in Scottish education should regularly check out the Events Calendar and follow @InformedScot on Twitter. Quite simply, it tells you about everything that’s going on!”
– David Noble, co-founder of Radio EDUtalk

“It’s great to see all that’s happening in learning and development in one place. Thanks to the Calendar I am always up to date with current events and never miss anything.”

Computing Conference 2020 @ Stirling Court Hotel
Feb 5 all-day

Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA)

The conference will combine vocational and academic qualifications, so it will cover the full suite of Computing awards ranging from Nationals to HNDs.

The event will be a mix of keynotes, workshops and demonstrations. We’ve already thought about the workshops, which will likely include the new materials for NPA Cyber Security, introduce NPA Data Science and HND Cyber Security, and workshops about National Qualifications. The Keynote (still to be decided) will focus on an emerging field of computer science.

Professor Rose Luckin ‘Education and AI: What Should be Done Now to Ensure Learners and Teachers Benefit @ TBC
Mar 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

University of Edinburgh, Centre for Research in Digital Education

Abstract:

In this talk, I will argue that in order to ensure that AI technologies for use in education and training embody judicious analysis and learn in a Learning Sciences informed manner, we must develop inter-stakeholder partnerships modelled on those that are operationalised through the EDUCATE EDtech programme in London. These inter-stakeholder partnerships are essential for AI developers to better understand teaching and learning, and for educators and trainers to better understand AI. They are also key to the development of better AI for education and training.
