Building Society: Young People's Experiences and Outcomes in the Technologies. Transforming Lives through Learning
Education Scotland
This report continues the series in which Education Scotland evaluates the quality of young people's learning and achievements, in this case in the technologies. The report contributes to the overall picture of what it is like to be a learner in a Scottish early learning or childcare setting or school in this second decade of the 21st Century. The technologies unarguably form a central part of Scotland's heritage, identity and future. Their importance cannot be overstated whether as an economic necessity, a social influence or a vital educational experience. The technologies make a core contribution to key Scottish Government policies, within and beyond education in aspects such as sustainable economic growth, a feature which echoes throughout this report. The technologies have the potential to impact hugely on children's and young people's learning, achievements and readiness for the world in which they will live and work. This report celebrates much that is good in learning in Scottish technologies, and equally sets out much that can be done to improve outcomes for our children and young people, and our communities. The report adopts the title "Building Society" to reinforce the values which underpin the Scottish concept of the technologies--as inspiring, enabling, supporting and equipping our children and young people to take their learning in the technologies and use it to make people's lives better. The following are appended: (1) Real-world, real-time technologies; (2) Messages from the statistics; (3) Messages from the research; and (4) Centres and schools visited as part of the task.
