Join XMA at this year’s Scottish Learning Festival taking place at the SECC Glasgow on the 25th-26th September 2019.

XMA will be delivering two inspirational sessions per day in the Exhibitor Seminar Theatre, focused on how Apple technology is currently transforming teaching landscapes by empowering educators with tools that are truly beneficial.

You can also find us on stand H90 throughout the duration of the show, where our experts will be on hand for more in depth conversations around your individual journey and allow you to experience everything iPad has to offer your school(s). As an Apple Solution Expert for Education and sole supplier on the Scottish Government National Framework Agreement for Tablet Client Devices (SP-16-001) we are a trusted advisor and compliant route to purchase.

With conference themes around ‘Achieving Excellence & Equity’ through to creating a culture of empowerment and a healthy, successful learning community, we will focus on how technology can contribute to this agenda.

Scottish government set out a digital learning and teaching strategy in 2016 including national and local actions. These aim to improve learning outcomes through access to digital technology, developing skills/confidence of educators using that technology and making edtech a central consideration in all areas of the curriculum.

The Scottish Learning Festival (SLF) is the largest annual professional learning event for Scottish education and over the years we have welcomed thousands of educational practitioners from across Scotland and beyond. SLF is open to all educational practitioners involved in Scottish education and is completely free for everyone to attend.
