So the Google tiles have appeared on your Glow Launchpad. What next? There are many services within G-suite, some of which (eg, Drive, Docs, Gmail) you may well have used before in everyday life. One of the more powerful tools is Google Classroom.
See the video below for an introduction to G-Suite, and in particular Classroom and how you can use it with the other services such as Google Docs.
The Digital Schools Awards were launched in September 2016 in order to recognise and share best practice in primary schools. Schools can sign up to receive practical support, with the aim of being certified as a Digital School by Education Scotland. Register your school today!
Networking and sharing resources with other teachers is perhaps the most valuable form of professional learning, particularly in a subject like Computing Science, which is ever-changing!
The Glow Technologies Professional Learning Community is a great place for primary and secondary teachers alike to find and share resources and advice. Really worth checking out for any teacher grappling with the subject! It also contains useful links and lots of resources about computational thinking.
It’s not all about computing, however! Teachers of any of the technical subjects can find help and resources here.
On Safer Internet Day (February 7th!) there will be a Glow TV event broadcast live, with police officers will give advice on internet safety. Sign on to Glow TV from 10.45 to 11.30 on the 7th Feb to take part.
