Digital play resources

'Digital Play' has been developed by Professor Lydia Plowman within the Moray House Digital Education Team as a response to help individuals learn more about the role of digital media in the lives of children. It focuses on young children aged up to five or six and is intended to be useful for educators, students, childminders and others working with parents and caregivers at home or in early childhood education and care settings.

Digimap for schools

The online teaching and learning resource, Digimap for Schools, is being made freely available to support school pupils worldwide during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The award-winning Digimap for Schools service – which aids teaching of geography, maths, literacy, history and data skills – was created by the University’s EDINA centre of excellence, which specialises in data and digital technologies. This online resource is available for use by their teachers and pupils working at home, whether they are based in the UK or overseas. Digimap for Schools is currently used by around 2,000 primary and 1,000 secondary schools across the UK.

The service – which is designed for use by pupils as young as five years old – comes with learning resources aligned to Scottish, Welsh and English schools’ curricula. It gives pupils and teachers access to a wide range of Ordnance Survey maps, as well as National Library of Scotland historical mapping, Get Mapping aerial imagery of the UK, and Collins Bartholomew World Panorama global maps.
