Building Digital Infrastructure Capacity

The aim of Data Education in Schools programme, funded by the Data Driven Innovation Skills Gateway in the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal, is to develop skills in data literacy for learners and teachers. 

The 'Building Digital Infrastructure Capacity' part of the Data Education in Schools programme of work sees collaboration with Digital Leaders from the six councils in the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region - City of Edinburgh, East Lothian, Fife, Midlothian, Scottish Borders and West Lothian - with the aim of recommending the appropriate digital technology infrastructure required to support the data education curriculum.

The aim of this report is not to highlight the strengths or expose the weaknesses of individual Councils or schools, but to assimilate the data gathered from a range of sources and stakeholders into a set of key findings and recommendations. These will support the development of a Data Education in Schools programme across the region over the next eight years.
