Opening up the Future: It’s your future

It’s my Future is a song created by children, young people and adult learners to express their views on how learning needs to change to fulfil their aspirations. It demonstrates what exciting modern learning can look like.

Education Scotland want to hear from children and young people across Scotland about their hopes and aspirations for the future.

On Tuesday December 4 2012 at 11am Education Scotland will host a national event in Inveralmond Community High School. The event led, by young people, will help shape future developments in learning and teaching. This Glow TV session will enable children and young people to speak directly to Craig Munro, one of Education Scotland’s strategic directors, and share their views about learning and teaching.

These views will be taken into consideration as the organisation shapes its corporate improvement plan priorities. There will be an opportunity to see the launch of the music video and follow links to inspirational learning taking place in Scottish education.

Sign up and join us in Glow TV on the day or view the recording in Watch Again.

What is Remembrance? – Wounded

This year Poppyscotland have teamed up with Glow TV to bring you a series of events about remembrance. This is the final event in this series.

From 20th – 23rd November 2012, Surgeons’ Hall Museum at The Royal College of Surgeons will host a unique theatrical and educational event. ‘Wounded’ is a new play, which has been written by members of the Birmingham Repertory Theatre for students from S3 upwards.

Wounded is a free educational event which has two aims: to bring to life elements of the Curriculum for Excellence, particularly in History, English, Drama and Citizenship; and to support outreach initiatives for students, enabling interaction with museum collections.

This is your chance to watch ‘Wounded’ from the comfort of your own classroom!

Sign up and join us in Glow TV on Thursday 22nd November at 10am or Watch Again if you are unable to join us live.

Leadership at Hill of Banchory Primary

Join us on Tuesday 20th November for a double event coming live from Hill of Banchory Primary School in Aberdeenshire.

During our first event at 2pm meet the pupils who are actively encouraged to take leadership in their own learning experience.

Hear from the youngsters about how they are using profiling and actively use Glow for their Whole School Development Time. Every Thursday they are provided with questions and issues that need to be discussed as a whole school and the pupils can give their own views and opinions therefore making them a valuable part of the school with their own Pupil Voice.

You will have the opportunity to ask the pupils questions and find out how they feel about their important role in the development of their school.

Sign up and join us in Glow TV at 2pm on Tuesday 20th November for this exciting event or if you miss the live event make sure that you see the recording in Watch Again!

Then at 4pm join us again to following on from our earlier session with the pupils where you will have an opportunity to hear from the staff about how they are developing a culture of empowerment within a school environment.

During this session find out how leadership is fostered with all members of staff including non teaching staff and how Pupil Volunteering is organised and carried out in the school.

Sign up and join us in Glow TV for this insight into a school working well towards leadership empowerment for all or catch up with the recording in Watch Again.
