Technology is permeating every aspect of our lives and changing how we work, live and play. Skills Development Scotland and the Scottish Government-backed Digital Technologies Skills Group said it was the economy’s fastest-growing sector and is forecast to grow twice as fast as the Scottish economy overall in the years to 2024. Our education system needs prepare our children for the demands of the future and this means integrating technology in the classroom and equipping our young people to shape it and use it responsibly.
