Glow: IMS Global Learning Impact

On Monday and Tuesday of next week I will be speaking with colleagues from the Glow contractor, RM, at the IMS Global Learning Impact 2009 event in Barcelona.

Glow has been short-listed for the Global Learning Impact Award for 2009. Based on the scale and ambition of Glow I think that it will give the other projects a good challenge. Win or lose it is a good news story for Scotland and for the Scottish Government that Glow is being considered for an international award.

Let’s hope that later in the week I am blogging about winning. If not then I at least I will be able to console myself  by what I hope will be an interesting event in a wonderful city.
