Two Dundee teachers are receiving national recognition for their work with technology in the classroom.

City council children and families service convener Councillor Gregor Murray has met them ahead of the prestigious Scotland Women in Technology Awards on Thursday.

Jill Sim from Rosebank Primary and Kelly MacDonald from Harris Academy have been nominated for their school categories as teacher of the year.

Councillor Murray said: β€œThis is a fantastic accolade for Jill and Kelly and I wish them all the very best for the awards.

β€œTheir nominations highlight the quality of technology and digital education that is ongoing in Dundee schools.

 β€œEnthusiastic teachers are helping our children and young people to learn important digital skills that will help them to play a part in the exciting opportunities that are developing in Dundee.

β€œIt is vital for the future of the city that we help equip our pupils for the challenges and demands that they will face when they leave school.”
