Twig and Tigtag Announcement

Twig and Tigtag GraphicWe are pleased to announce that Twig and Tigtag have been procured, through competitive tender, by Education Scotland for a further 12 months through to July 2016.  As a result, these award-winning online resources will continue to be available to all schools through Glow for use by educators and learners across Scotland.

New resources, Twig assignments and Tigtag Junior, will also be added in late autumn to the existing package available. An accompanying resource, Reach-Out CPD – a professional learning resource from Twig World to support primary science – has also been recently made available to Glow users.

As part of the national recommendations on learning for sustainability, all learners should have an entitlement to learning for sustainability. This resource provides a range of short films, ready-made lesson plans, practical activities and hundreds of images and diagrams, many of which explore key concepts of sustainability. For example,  the Twig resource for ecosystems, provides a range of short films and extension questions around effects of climate change and loss of biodiversity. The Tigtag resource on energy sources explores sustainable energy and water use and the links between society and environment.

Learners and practitioners (including those in early learning and childcare, additional support needs, primary and secondary school settings) are encouraged to make use of these resources which can be found on the App Library of Glow.
