Newbattle Digital Centre of Excellence – Our transformational journey: The Pupils of Newbattle High School with Professor Judy Robertson, University of Edinburgh, Mark Davidson, Newbattle High School and Tommy Lawson, Midlothian Council & University of Edinburgh
The new Centre opened its services to the public in Summer 2018 as part of Midlothian’s ambition to create a world-class education system through excellence and equity. As well as being a fantastic community resource including a library, leisure centre and secondary school, it will also be Scotland’s first school based Digital Centre of Excellence. A partnership between Midlothian Council and the University of Edinburgh, the Centre will deliver a wide range of research and development into new and exciting learner pathways through to innovative learning, teaching and digital education. Ever wondered how data driven and digital innovation could enhance learning? Come and listen to our pupils!
