Empowered Learning

This page will give you information on the City of Edinburgh’s Empowered Learning Project!

As you may know, the Empowered Learning Project is part of the City of Edinburgh Council’s ambitious and inclusive education strategy, Edinburgh Learns for Life. The investment of £17.6m in our Empowered Learning project will provide a world class digital environment for all learners.

The Empowered Learning Project will give every young person in P6 to S6 an iPad. Shared iPads will be available for use in P1 to P5 and Early Years.

These devices will significantly enhance the learning experience through equity of access, encouraging innovation, evoking imagination, and nurturing a love of learning. The project will create a unique opportunity to unlock the potential of every learner across all schools and allow collaboration and innovation to flourish in our city.

Please watch this launch video to hear more about the Empowered Learning Project and what it will mean for your child.
