Today I had the pleasure of visiting Bridgend Primary, in West Lothian to find how they used Glow and other Technologies last session in their Primary 6/7 class. Glow was used in a number of ways to support learning and teaching within various areas such as; linking with a school in Orkney, a Class Election (involving cluster schools) and topic work.
Luckily you also have the chance to find out about what they have been doing at Bridgend Primary, as they are presenting at the Education Showcase on Thursday 22nd September at 2pm at the Scottish Learning Festival. Their presentation is called Using Glow/Technologies to Support Learning, Teaching and Assessment. You do not have to sign up to this presentation, so pop along and find out what Bridgend Primary have been up to.
You can also find out about some of their projects by visiting the West Lothian, Sharing our Learning Blog.
A new resource produced by the Edinburgh Disasters Response Committee aims to support teachers who want to assist with charitable aid relief for the famine in the Horn of Africa. Details of the EDRC education pack, and more information about other educational resources to help young people discuss the situation and its causes, are described on the Education Scotland Global Citizenship blog. http://ltsblogs.org.uk/globalcitizenship/
The pack is available for download from the national Glow Group for Developing Global Citizens. https://portal.glowscotland.org.uk/establishments/nationalsite/Developing%20Global%20Citizens/Lists/Pages/Resources.aspx
