DYW Moray releases new career videos

DYW Regional Group in Moray involved 15 pupils to plan, film and edit 6 films for use in any educational context to show young people what career opportunities are available to them in growth sectors in the local authority.

The films are focussed on 6 Growth Sectors identified in the Moray Skills Framework launched in May 2017 by the Moray Council.  We now would like the film to be used as much as possible to inform our young people better about potential career paths available to them – examples of usage may be at careers events; to assist with the delivery of courses within schools/colleges; to generally promote the Moray area for work etc.

Please follow the link below and scroll down to the section that says “Careers in Moray – Films for Educational Usage”.

Teachers, Lecturers and Employers are more than welcome to use them to show to our young people in Moray the Careers Available to them.   Please can you pass on this email to any of your colleagues who would find it of value to see or use the films.

The films are also available on our YouTube page.  Please click on the links below for each video.

BBC Schools Report Practice Day

There is still plenty of time to sign up for the BBC’s School Report. The next practice day is on the 11th December.

BBC News School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.

It is a collaborative project run by BBC News and BBC Learning.

Using lesson plans and materials from this website, and with support from BBC staff and partners, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.

In March, schools take part in an annual News Day, simultaneously creating video, audio and text-based news reports, and publishing them on a school website, to which the BBC aims to link.

School Reporters produced a stunning array of content on 27 March 2014, with more than 1,000 schools across the UK making the news on the biggest ever School Report News Day.

The ninth News Day will be held on 19 March 2015.

CPDMeet 41 – Using Glow in the Classroom

We’re pleased to say that the programme of CPDMeets will be restarted with an offering from the Stepin community.

On Thursday 1st December at 7pm two of the mentors for this community will lead a session on using Glow in the classroom. You will be in the very safe hands of some expert practitioners here, so please come and join them as they share a bit of their Glow magic! Some of you may have seen Olivia Wexelstein talk eloquently at SLF in September about the amazing work her primary learners have been doing using Glow for projects, blogging and portfolios, and Caroline Breyley from Shetland uses Glow regularly with her school to forge and maintain local and international links.

Sign up as usual to this opportunity on Glow http://bit.ly/cpdmeet41

PS. You can find a number of recorded CPDMeets and other online CPD on Glow here http://bit.ly/onlinecpd. Might be worth a bookmark on your browser
