The 1 + 2 Factor is a nationwide competition for Scottish education establishments. We are asking clusters to work together using any of the tools within Glow to create learning spaces which will help them with the transition from primary to secondary and the implementation of 1 + 2.
Successful clusters from across Scotland will be chosen to take part in the final event on the 30th September 2015 to showcase their work and then take part in a fun interactive afternoon using digital technologies to enhance language experiences.
- Why should you take part?
It has been highlighted by SCILT that links between the secondary school and its associated primary schools have become increasingly important for additional language learning. Clusters must work together to decide which languages will be studied. Secondary departments must know what has been delivered and how. Assessment information should be shared. In best practice, secondary school language departments will have regular contact with the associated primary schools.
Some senior managers have expressed concern over having sufficient time to devote to language learning and over maintaining sufficient numbers of trained staff. It will be important for school management teams and local authorities to work together to address these concerns. The 1+2 Factor hopes to encourage clusters to work together to address these issues.
