Apple Distinguished School Award

Today, in North America, it is Digital Learning Day. (In Scotland we celebrate National Digital Learning Week in May so look out for upcoming events…) Digital learning plays an essential part in the life of Tynecastle High School where students and staff make effective and innovative use of digital technologies to enhance learning and teaching. We’ve released a new book in the Apple Book Store detailing many of the ways our students and staff use digital learning. You can view or download our book by tapping on this link on any iOS device.

Our new book was also part of our application to be re-recognised as an Apple Distinguished School, a recognition we are delighted to have achieved again, and in fact the only school in Scotland to hold it at this time. This is down to the fantastic work our students and staff do to make sure we improve and innovate wherever possible to achieve the best outcomes for learning. Our use of digital technologies and our 1:1 Digital Learning programme is one of the ways in which we do this. It is exciting to continue to be a part of this global community and learn from and share practice with school across the world.

Opportunities to experience what digital learning looks like at Tynecastle will be available for parents and carers nearer Digital Learning Week in May 2019.
