A total of 38 Scottish schools have been recognised for excellence in digital teaching and learning with Digital School status.

Launched in September 2016, the Digital Schools programme encourages and recognises schools in their efforts to integrate digital technology across the curriculum.

The programme, which is free to all schools, offers a road-map and resources to schools seeking to do more with technology. Industry partners HP, Microsoft and Intel co-ordinate the programme and have given funding of £600,000 over five years as well as practical support. It is also run with Education Scotland and Skills Development Scotland.

One in four schools in Scotland – 668 schools – have registered to participate since its launch and the 2018 awards have gone to 35 primary and three secondary schools.
