AND TECHNOLOGY LINKS
The new Learning and Teaching Scotland website now offers users
an integrated online service with access to a wide range of information
and resources for education in Scotland. The site consists of a
number of key areas which offer information and advice on national
education initiatives as well as classroom and teacher resources
to support all areas of the curriculum. You
can also find out about the work and remit of Learning and Teaching
Scotland and the range of products and services we provide. More
detailed information about LTS Online Services for Scottish Education
can be found in the relevant sections within the resource catalogue.
5-14 Online supports practitioners involved in the 5-14 curriculum
and in primary and early secondary education in general. You can
search and download ideas and materials for teaching by subject
or year group, and more easily integrate ICT into the curriculum
by browsing the site's collection of specially selected web links.
Whether you are a student teacher,
probationer, classroom teacher, headteacher or curriculum manager,
you will find 5-14 Online an invaluable resource.www.LTScotland.org.uk/5to14
