Learning Resource Supporters
Digimap for Schools is a fun, engaging digital resource used in classrooms across Great Britain. It is the perfect classroom accompaniment to The Daily Mile. On screen plotting and measurement tools enable pupils to plot their route and calculate the distance of their Daily Mile. Pupils can add their own information to the maps and can even fade away modern maps to find if they had run their Daily Mile at the end of the 19th century where their route would have taken them! Digimap for Schools is an educational resource delivered by EDINA at the University of Edinburgh.
Like all really good ideas, The Daily Mile is simple and easy to implement. I was blown away by the enthusiasm of parents, staff and - most importantly – pupils for the concept. If all schools adopted it, we'd have an incredibly powerful antidote to the ills resulting from physical inactivity that plague modern day Scotland.Dr. Aileen Keel CBE, Acting Chief Medical Officer for Scotland
