Katie Barrowman from LTS made this video. It covers the basics of navigating Glow (Scotland’s National Intranet for Schools) including exploring your school site, your local authority site, your My Glow area and My Glow Groups list, and the National Glow site.

Glow Science

LTS have added a new Science resource to Glow:

Glow Science is a new video-based learning resource designed to enhance pupils’ understanding of science in the modern world. Glow Science can be used in many different ways to support the Sciences experiences and outcomes as well as other areas of Curriculum for Excellence.

The first module to be released focuses on the Human Body and covers topics such as: brain, heart, pregnancy, senses, muscles, lungs, hormones.

The resource includes an area for teachers to provide ideas and tips on using the videos in the classroom.

Additional modules will be added to Glow Science covering the universe, chemistry, physics, biology, earth science, geology and weather to form a visual encyclopedia of engaging video clips that will help enrich the teaching and learning experience.

Glow Update

This term has seen the start of the roll out of Glow to Highland schools. We have created 29 secondary Glow portals and 184 primary school portals. We have now registered nearly 1600 teachers with a Glow account. If you want a Glow account ask your HT to submit your name to the ICT Unit Helpdesk.

November will see the start of a training programme in Glow. For details of these CPD events check the Highland CPD calendar. There will also be representatives of the Glow pilot, that is being held in the Mallaig ASG, at the Highland Learning Festival in Dingwall on October 27th and 28th to share their experiences of Glow so far.

The picture below shows pupils from Arisaig Primary, Lady Lovat Primary, Mallaig Primary , Inverie Primary and Mallaig High school all sharing a French lesson using Glow Meet.
