Our Digital Champions Spotlight offers an opportunity to engage in conversations, learning and support focused on different themes.

Spotlight 1: Connecting and Communicating (June 2021)

Our first Spotlight was focused on ‘Communicating and Connecting’. This ran throughout June 2021 and we covered a range of resources and learning opportunities covering all the different ways your users connect and communicate with friends, family and services.

Check out some of our favourite resources on ‘Connecting and Communicating’.

You can also read our full report, with insights from some of the amazing Digital Champions delivering Connecting Scotland.

Spotlight 2: Education (August 2021)

Our second Connecting Scotland Spotlight focused on the theme of Education, running from the 16th to the 20th August. It explored how technology can be used to promote lifelong learning; whether it’s helping students attend classes, watching videos to learn new skills or participating in free online courses and much more!
