Although the Digital Centre of Excellence is based in Midlothian, it is already receiving attention and investment from across Scotland and beyond. The Centre will act as a digital hub, sharing the experiences and technical expertise, developing pedagogy and learner pathways to Scottish Education and beyond.
It is thought that the Centre will have a significant role for the immediate learning community in Newbattle, Midlothian schools, the Regional Improvement Collaborative and the City Deal Region.
Discussion is ongoing with the City Deal Skills and Innovation Group as to how the Centre can act as a Digital Hub. All aspects of the Centre will be outward looking and collaborative. Newbattle will share its resources and expertise both regionally and Nationally.
