Glow Refresh and Glow

The Scottish Learning Festival has been and gone.  What a great, busy two days.  Exhausting but great to chat with so many teachers about Glow, what is working, and what needs to change.

The festival this year coincided with the Glow Refresh campaign, where we highlight what changes have taken place within Glow in recent months (more info and some jazzy videos showing what is new can be found here!)

We were also able to talk to lots of people about Glow, gather feedback, demo live and engage in conversations with practitioners from across Scotland.

Ross Watson (my colleague from the national team) held 2 great sessions on the Scottish Government stand talking about what we are doing.

I love engaging with teachers and others around the subject of Glow and the fab examples that I have been able to see as I work with teachers and students from across the country.   I also enjoy having conversations on the future of Glow and with people who are frustrated by it.

Dave Terron summed up the views of many on his blog this morning.  Click here to read his post and my reply.  John Sexton makes some good points re creative uses of technology and Glow on his blog.

I would urge ALL Glow users, in fact, all Scottish educators, to get involved in the future of Glow.  The Glow Futures team are working hard collating information, facts and thoughts from all over Scotland.  Please make sure your voice is heard by replying to one of their online questionnaires of discussion forums – link here.
