I used to work for Learning and Teaching Scotland as it’s Chief Technology Adviser. At this time I was responsible for the technical aspects of the Glow project. I am always keen to keep in touch with the project which is now being rolled out across Scotland.
There is a news letter which is now published regularly and there is always something of interest there to read. I highlight here an article of the latest Glowing newsletter about how school pupils in Shetland were able to use Glow to continue their work when the school was closed due to adverse weather – click here to read.
I have to confess that when I went to school – if it showed and the school was closed, the last thing on my mind was to do schools work – much better to get the sledge our and get involved in snowball fights etc…. That said well done to the teacher and pupils there for this excellent application of technology to support learning.
