Event Overview

This short talk will outline the progress over the past year to integrate the Noteable coding platform developed by EDINA, the centre for digital expertise and services within the Information Services Group, into Scottish schools.

The short talk will speak to the integration of Noteable as a coding platform into the GLOW intranet Scottish schools use for accessing resources and applications, the deficits being addressed in computer science student numbers through this project in collaboration with Education Scotland, and point to future development that will benefit classrooms including Noteable as a web development platform and being used to teach with data through an interactive platform.
