"I have to say that the Scran website has blown me away! It is the sort of resource that I have been waiting on all my teaching career...which is a long time! Congratulations on an amazing job. The site is user friendly, has loads of fantastic information and links and the pupils really get a lot out of it."

ICT Coordinator, Glasgow

"As a lecturer of ICT in Education in a TEI I find Scran an invaluable resource not only for myself but also for my students to help them prepare materials for placement and for their academic studies."
ICT Lecturer, University of Edinburgh

"I LOVE the worksheet/poster create tool. Great idea and VERY useful."
Gaelic Medium Teacher, Highland

"We value Scran enormously: it is a unique resource that is entirely relevant to so many areas of the curriculum. I know of no other resource like it. It is so hard to attain relevant resources online. Often hours can be spent hunting around with search engines; often teachers are wary of letting children browse for information on the 'un-moderated' internet. Scran proves itself utterly relevant and a safe online environment for children."
Primary ICT Coordinator, Edinburgh

"Scran is the essential site for Scottish history, the first port-of-call for most local history enquiries. It's hard now to imagine what we did in the era before Scran!"
Librarian, West Lothian

"I ... also found that the website is very easy to use and I am not a computer whizz kid. It’s always exciting to visit the site and find out what's new.  Altogether a great teaching resource."
Primary Teacher, North Lanarkshire

"This is a fantastic resource for teachers and if it continues to improve as it has in recent months it will become even more so.  Teachers don't always have the time (or internet priority access) to search for photos – Scran does it for us. Thank you!"
Secondary Teacher, Geography, East Renfrewshire

"My only gripe about Scran is not enough hours in the day to look through it all...!"
Librarian, Midlothian
