A teacher from Inverness has won digital innovator of the year at the Scottish at Scottish Education Awards 2022.
Beth Fuller of Muirtown Primary School took home the top prize from the event in Glasgow earlier this month.
The award recognises educators who are inspiring and successful digital innovators in education who are harnessing the power technology can offer in education to make a daily difference to students and staff alike.
Ms Fuller said: “The Covid-19 pandemic was the catalyst to accelerate our digital pathways in education.
"Our pupils are our main drivers and as teachers we gain a great deal of inspiration from them.
The last three years has transformed the ways in which utilise digital technology within Muirtown Primary School.
"The allocation of Chromebooks, along with the unprecedented lockdown in 2020, provided us with the means and impetus to broaden our digital skills as a school in exceptional and often turbulent circumstances.
"Muirtown Primary certainly rose to the challenge. I am deeply proud to have been a part of it."
