This summer I have been working on the National Parks Glow group in the National Site.
This group is the product of discussions with the Cairngorm Natonal Parks Authority and Aberdeenshire ICT Project Officers. The potential for collaboration and partnership with Learning and Teaching Scotland (LTS) is growing, as this national group takes shape. Further talks will take place in August with the Cairngorms National Park Authority (CGNPA) and the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park (LL and TNPA).
The NPAs will eventually assist with the administration of this national group along with teachers who work in schools adjacent to the parks. The NPAs have started to provide resources for teachers who will be able to collaborate through the group and publish pupils work on the group’s pages.
Some pupils and teachers, in Aberdeenshire, are about to take part in an LTS funded project to promote learning in the CGNP.
This means that Glow will be used to promote learning in the outdoors. The National Park Glow group will, hopefully, model good partnerships in Glow and support the ideals of a Curriculum for Excellence by encouraging more outdoor learning, more intersubject collaboration and a better understanding of our rich natural and historical heritage.
