Resources for Digital Champions

Just like a new learner, Digital Champions are also on a journey. We want to support you on this journey and make sure you have all the tools and resources you need.

You can join our Slack community to share best practice and ask questions. Click here to join the conversation.

Finding out what other organisations are up to can be really helpful. In our series of blogs we’re asking people to share their experiences of supporting learners use their new devices through our ‘Digital Champions Spotlight’ series, as well as top tips from Mhor Collective and other programme partners.

We want to hear from you

Connecting Scotland is keen to find out what further support Digital Champions need to support their learners. We are aware that the initial Digital Champion training won’t cover everything you want and need to know to provide the support your learner needs.

This is your chance to tell us what you need from Connecting Scotland so we can create new resources and learning opportunities for you. You can tell us what you want by completing this short survey, which should take between 5 and 10 minutes.
