What is Innovation in Education?

In recent years, we’ve seen transformative changes in how to nurture and inspire the minds of tomorrow. Innovation in education means solving real problems in new ways in order to promote equitable learning.

Identifying creative ways to connect with those in education and re-imagining how teaching is expressed and experienced will ensure we produce a vibrant new generation of thinkers and innovators. A focus on curriculum innovation across Education Scotland aims to ensure that curriculum development and design is strong, sustainable and responsive – and results in improved outcomes for learners across Scotland.
