We are pleased to launch a new help and support approach to help schools make the most of Glow – we have also taken the opportunity to refresh Glow Connect as your information portal for Glow and gateway to the new help and support resources.
Please have a look around and explore what’s on offer.
A new National Digital Learning Week is taking place from 2 – 6 March and we want to encourage schools to get involved and share how they are using digital technologies to support learning and teaching. We would love to hear how schools are incorporating digital approaches at home and in the classroom, whether this is small-scale or large-scale. The whole point of National Digital Learning Week is to involve schools, share what’s going on and encourage teachers to have a go with digital technologies and to share, do, develop in school with learners.
During the week we would like to encourage schools to:
• share the innovative and exciting ways in which learners are using digital technologies in school
• get involved in a National Digital Learning Community comprising teachers/educators across Scotland
• make a pledge about what they are going to do next to change their practice
• have a look at what is happening – be inspired and get involved – this is your chance to give I.T. a go!
Find out how to get involved.
