At its heart is the principle that we should be able to share professional learning with all educators on Glow. So there are no closed communities, with a ‘members only’ sign on the home page!
Instead, we have one community, the National PL Community and specialism is achieved by adding keywords (or hashtags) to profiles and items being shared.
So for example, anything with the hashtag #assess will appear in the Assessment community and anything with #ep will appear in the Early Phase. Something added with both #ep and #assess will appear, you’ve guessed it, in both communities.
So now we have over 50 communities, from Addressing Dyslexia to Technologies with over 1,600 members and over 500 learning opportunities.
In future posts, we will feature some of the communities that are developing.
In the meantime, here’s a wee 5-minute video overview
