From the Moray Learning Technologists:
The website created to help parents/carers support learners in accessing Glow and staying safe online has recently been updated. The aim of this resource is to help learners log into Glow and access their learning in either Microsoft Teams or Google Classroom. You can access the website using the following link – Digital Support Website.
Click here for more info on the Parent and Carer Support Offer – ICT
To help parents/carers support their child in Learning from Home, there is a section on our website. You can either click here to visit the section, or access it via the main menu, as the image shows below:
A good place to begin would be “Glow for Parents and Carers” where there is useful information about Security for your home PC and Internet Safety.
Young people from across Scotland are still being offered access to a national, on-line education resource providing the opportunity to:
- participate in an extensive series of live early-evening study support webinar lessons from their own home
- benefit from specialist teacher input during the live, real-time webinar lessons
- access subject specific resources in advance of the webinar lessons
This offer seeks to complement the education provision being provided by schools and local authorities across Scotland. The e-learning National Offer provides free, live, interactive webinar lessons in an extensive range of subjects for Level 5 and Higher courses.
All e-Sgoil webinar lessons are delivered by subject specialists, assisted by a second teacher. The following courses are on offer: Business Management, Chemistry, Computing Science, Eachdraidh, English, French, Gaelic, Gàidhlig, History, Mandarin, Maths, Music, Physics, RMPS and Spanish. Digital study skills lessons are also offered.
This study support provision is a key strand of a comprehensive National e-Learning offer which includes vacancy and supply cover to meet the staffing requirements of schools across the country, a programme of remote learning opportunities for interrupted learners – including accredited courses in Literacy and Numeracy – and a diverse range of curriculum enrichment activities, involving a number of external partners.
This is a fantastic opportunity and I would encourage all applicable senior phase pupils to engage with this programme in order to support their studies. To register for this opportunity, pupils require their Glow login details and should use this link: http://www.e-sgoil.com/studysupport2020.
If you have further questions please contact me at school.

This week, S1 pupils are being sent home with letters and parent/guardian codes for Show My Homework. Pupils will have logged into Show My Homework in school and will have some experience of returning homework.
When using SMHW on a PC at home, search for “Show My Homework Login” or click here. If you wish to download the app onto other devices, this can be done through Google Play or the Apple Store.
Pupils will login using their Glow username and password and have been reminded to keep these in a safe place.
For help in using SMHW, select the appropriate link below to take you to the help pages:
A website and app have been created to help parents/carers support learners in accessing Glow and saying safe online. The content on both the app and website are similar and the aim of both of these resources is to get learners logged into Glow where they can access long term support resources.
You can access the website
The app can be accessed via a computer by pasting the following address into the browser – mdltdigitaladvice.glideapp.io
From here you can view all the app and get instructions on how to access the app via your phone’s camera. Most iPhones and Android will automatically give the user to option to add the app to their home screen. This will create an icon and appear like a normal app, with any updates showing the automatically next time the app is opened. Please note this is a web app and not available for download through the usual app stores, it can only be accessed by address above.
In addition to these resources which have been created with parents/carers in mind, all users, including learners, will have access to the Moray Digital Learning Team SharePoint site which contains the majority Digital Learning support materials. Once logged into Glow there can be accessed using the following link – https://glowscotland.sharepoint.com/sites/MorayCouncil/MC/DIGILEARN
A tile has also been added to the Moray Council Launch Pad in Glow to allow users to access the site directly. The SharePoint site is updated daily with new support materials including How to Videos and a digital tip of the day.
The Moray Digital Learning Team Blog also contains useful information, news and details of upcoming events for those who are unable to access Glow, it can be found here –
Thanks to the Moray Digital Learning Team for providing this support.
