from @ Education Scotland's Learning Blog

The Primary Science Education Conference (PSEC) is coming to Edinburgh in June 2019. It will bring together teachers and primary science experts from across the UK and internationally to share best practice in primary science teaching. From 6-8 June 2019, the comprehensive programme will offer outstanding professional development in primary science, complemented by a dynamic exhibition specifically focussed on primary science teaching.

Now is the perfect time to register your interest in attending PSEC, submit a proposal to deliver a workshop and apply for a teachers bursary to help cover your costs. On Friday 7th June there will be a dedicated Children’s Conference and more details of this will be released in September.

PSEC is brought to you by the Primary Science Teaching Trust (PSTT) – an educational charity whose vision is to see excellent teaching of science in every primary classroom in the UK.

Gaelic (Learners) in the secondary curriculum⤴

from @ Education Scotland's Learning Blog

e-Sgoil is an interactive, real-time teaching facility which uses Glow, Office 365 and Vscene to make Gaelic part of the curriculum in any school in Scotland.  e-Sgoil is offering  National 5 and Higher Gaelic (Learners) from August 2018.  This may be to provide progression with the 1+2 Approach to Languages in the broad general education or within the senior phase, or to enable learners to access Gaelic as a new subject.

e-Sgoil can also offer weekly inputs for Gaelic (Learners)  in the broad general education.

For more information, please contact e-sgoil@gnes.net or phone 01851 822850.
