DESMOS Support for Practitioners

Desmos is a graphing calculator which millions of students around the world use for free.   Desmos also create activities on top of that calculator, helping students use a powerful tool to experience all the curiosity, beauty, and sense that math has to offer. Those activities were used so often by so many teachers around the world they created an Activity Builder, helping every teacher create digital math activities that equal and exceed the activities they create themselves.

Using this activity builder the National Mathematics Development Group has created online support for the SQA National Qualifications.

Please log on to GLOW and visit our blog which has handy hints and tips for practitioners alongside activities linked to the SQA Assessment Standards for National 5 , Higher and Advanced Higher Mathematics.

Technologies at Work – Real life, Real Time

27 January 2016- 2:30pm

In March last year Education Scotland published ‘Building Society: Young people’s experiences and outcomes in the technologies’.   This impact review recognised how important this area of the curriculum is in preparing young people for the world of work. Technologies at work is a series of Glow meets that will allow young people to interact with people who have made a career through working in a range of different industries.

Each month we will record and share links to interview/conversations with real people working in technology related industries. These films will be there for you to watch in the ‘Watch Again’ area of Glow TV/broadcasting. You can watch these at a time and place that is appropriate for you and your learners. You will then be able to login at a later date (which will normally be between 2 and 4 weeks after the recordings have gone live on Watch Again)for a live glow TV session where you and your learners can ask the interviewee any questions.

Join the team at Education Scotland for what should be an interesting and informative discussion with Dr Pamela Anderson who works in the aero-space industry in Glasgow. Pamela has already recorded some background information and this is available at

https://meet.glowscotland.org.uk/p54og7shnkb/

It is anticipated that the Glow Meet session will build on what has already been recorded and will focus on

  • Career pathways
  • The importance of technologies in the workplace
  • Scotland and the aero-space industry

The session will be relevant for practitioners and young people working in the senior phase. Please sign up for the Glow Meet by following the link below.
