e-Sgoil is an interactive, real-time teaching facility which uses Glow, Office 365 and Vscene to make Gaelic part of the curriculum in any school in Scotland. e-Sgoil is offering National 5 and Higher Gaelic (Learners) from August 2018. This may be to provide progression with the 1+2 Approach to Languages in the broad general education or within the senior phase, or to enable learners to access Gaelic as a new subject.
e-Sgoil can also offer weekly inputs for Gaelic (Learners) in the broad general education.
