Play • 41 min

Mary Jalland is a primary school teacher from Scotland with a passion for teaching global and digital citizenship. She may be best known for her travelling toy elephants who teach her pupils about the world through social media. Mary believes that modelling responsible use of social media from a young age, is vital to nurturing positive digital citizens. Her elephant's travels have helped to teach her young pupils about big world events such as Climate Summits, Ebola and Conflict, and also about the world of work inspiring children to aspire to ambitious careers. At the heart of Mary's teaching style is listening to children and following their interests to keep them engaged in learning, and also sharing learning with parents and the community by communicating through tech such as social media, Seesaw or Google Classroom. Mary encourages her students to be peaceful activists, raising awareness on issues that matter to them using social media as a platform. Mary has spoken at many events and conferences on digital and global citizenship, on her research into engaging children as readers, and on play based pedagogy. She is currently writing a book about reaching the world outside the classroom without leaving the classroom.
