Learning Stories from Ormiston Primary

On Wed 30th May at 3.45pm , staff and young people from Ormiston Primary will tell us about their Learning Stories.

In Ormiston Primary School every child has a journal called a Learning Story containing photographs, video links and comments from parents, children and teaching staff. These Learning Stories have become integral to the life of learning at Ormiston Primary School and have replaced the end of term report card.

During this Glow Meet, headteacher Helen Gardyne and her pupils will share their journey of development with their Learning Stories and this will hopefully inspire you on your own journey and to reflect on the nature of reporting on children’s learning.

Sign up and join us for this inspiring CPD opportunity on Glow TV

I was very fortunate to spend a day recently with Helen Gardyne, the head teacher to work on a CPD opportunity for parental involvement and was bowled over by the work being done on this area.

1:1 Scotland – a new CPD community on Glow

On Thursday of this week, Derek Robertson of Education Scotland will be introducing a new CPD Community on Glow, 1:1 Scotland. If you are interested in how some schools in Scotland are taking learning forward in a school or class where every student has a computer or other device, then this is for you!

The first online 1:1Meet takes place on Thursday 24th of May at 4pm. More details and sign-up here on Glow

This is the first of several 1:1Meets planned to help build the community. In future opportunities, Ian Stuart of Islay High and Fraser Speirs of Cedar School of Excellence will share their experiences of 1:1 learning.
