Another good news story for Glow in this morning’s ‘Scotsman’ newspaper. Fiona McLeod notes that the capabilities of Glow ‘are proving to be out of this world for teachers who can use it find free resources and materials for school projects as wide ranging as The Vikings to the planets.’
Lots of great stuff beginning to happen using Glow – some of which we could never have imagined when developing the idea. We still need to work hard to make sure that every learner and teacher in Scotland has the opportunity to take full advantage of what Glow has to offer.
Glow was designed with narrowing the digital divide as a key objective. It may be that a new gap is opening up, this time not one based on whether you live in a remote/rural part of Scotland or in a large city. Not even one based on socio-economics, although this continues to be a concern. The gap is increasingly whether you have access to Glow or not. My focus is on making sure we close that gap as quickly as we can.
