Lead Scotland's Thinking Digitally module introduces you to an effective use of the web and web-based tools for finding and sharing information and knowledge. You will choose a free tool with which to produce a digital artefact using a mixture of text, images, audio/video material and web links; develop your digital skills, reflect on what you have learned and how you will share this learning. The course is credit rated, via Napier University; SCQF level 6, 12 credits. 

This is a paperless course and we show you how to manage your work (links, documents, images, etc) within your own password protected eportfolio. Guest speakers come along to some weekly sessions to share their expertise in areas such as digital citizenship, participation, online safety and accessibility, as appropriate to each group. Check out the Thinking Digitally resource page for supporting materials and free digital tools to try.

Let's get started:

Ahead of your first group session please click on the image below and follow the instructions to leave a post on the padlet to introduce yourselves to other group members.  Padlet is a free simple to use web based resource which you can use to communicate/collaborate with others.  It's like putting a stick note on a flipchart, except that you can add an image, file or weblink as well as text. Double click anywhere to leave a note and once you've made it click anywhere outwith the note and it will be live. Single click on your note to see the edit or delete option if you want to make changes or delete and start again. Can you see a use for padlet in your work?
