Have your say on the future of Glow

Help shape the future of Glow:

Glow is the world’s first national intranet for education. It is transforming the way the curriculum is delivered in Scotland. Now, Glow is looking to the future to ensure that it equips practitioners and learners with the tools they need today and tomorrow.

School staff, pupils, parents and other stakeholders are invited to help shape the future of Glow by having their say on how they would like to see it developed.
We would like to hear from all these groups, it doesn’t matter if they haven’t used Glow very much or have not yet had the opportunity to use it at all, we would like everyone to complete the survey to help us understand all views.

Join the Museum of Flight Glider Challenge Glow Meet

Explore the Science of Flight
On December 17th 1903 the Wright Brothers achieved the first powered, controlled, heavier
than air aeroplane flight, it took about 12 seconds and flew less than 40 meters. To celebrate
the event National Museum of Flight is working with Learning Teaching Scotland to create a
Glow Meet setting your pupils a challenge similar to that faced by the Wright Brothers.

The Glider Challenge
? To build a glider that will carry 50 grams of modelling clay to fly as far as possible
? The glider must be able to fit through a hole 300mm by 300mm
? The glider must not weigh more than 250 grams including the modelling clay

You can read full details in the Glider Challenge leaflet.

Share your Glow experiences

Now that Glow‘s in widespread use, what benefits are schools getting from it? Here’s your chance to share your experience via a 5-minute survey (you’ll need your Glow login).

This essential question is a hard one to answer because Glow offers so many different tools, and people can use it in so many different ways. That’s why the Glow team are aiming to get as many Glow users as possible to share their experiences. You don’t have to be a Glow expert; if you’ve used it, they want to hear from you!

The Glow Team is asking for your help in implementing an ambitious programme to build an overall picture of how practitioners are using Glow across Scotland and the benefits that are being achieved as a result. We are keen to receive input from those new to Glow or who are using Glow in a relatively simple way to provide a useful outcome as well as those with more experience. We want to represent as many different aspects of Glow usage as possible so we’d like to hear about anything you have done.

If you’re just wanting to jot down the survey’s address and plan to complete it later, you’ll find it here: http://www.glowhelp.me/experiences

As always, if you need any help getting started with Glow, or have ideas you’d like to explore, please get in touch.
