Conclusions and Recommendations from Gracemount, Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

1. What did you find most challenging during the CCL project?
Finding the most appropriate way to use the technology and NOT using iPads for the sake of using technology. Upskilling some pupils has been a challenge – never assume that ALL pupils know how to work the tablet as well as you think they can.
2. What was the biggst benefit of participating in the CCL project?
This project has opened my eyes up to innovation in the classroom and to really embrace technology as an aid to learning. This project has challenged me and required me to plan modern and motivating learning with technology. I have loved the collaboration not only within the UK, but across Europe.  
3. What have you been able to achieve? What are you most proud of?
I have been able to achieve a real link between using technology as a learning aid and learning. I am proud of the process that my class have gone through the year. The dream, explore and ask sections where completed particularly well in my project and I was happy with the quality and level of work in these sections.   
4. How will you take the work forward? How will you disseminate your work to others?
I will keep pushing the boundaries of innovation as much as possible. Money and budgets are always a problem, but I will continue to smart and find new ways to fund projects. I will ensure that staff that work beside me push their boundaries also – but ensuring we continue to use 1:1 tablets to aid our pupils learning. Sharing our practice is key to this and work together as much as possible is also critical.
5. 2 Top Tips for other teachers
1. Use the tablets as collaboratively as possible – 1:1 does not mean that pupils can use the technology in pairs or groups.      
2. ALWAYS have a backup in case the Wi-Fi fails!
