With the SQA National Qualifications examinations looming, the National Glow Team are pleased to announce the launch of exam revision support for NQ English and Mathematics. Aimed at pupils and supported by teachers, this Glow revision resource will help pupils in their preparation for national examinations by allowing them to post questions and queries into a teacher facilitated Glow Forum. The resource will be open to all pupils and teachers with the potential to become a vibrant self-supporting community.

In June 2011, just before the end of term, two of the East Renfrewshire clusters worked with their pupils to create e-portfolios using Glow Blogs. This involved Eastwood High School, St Ninian’s High School and their associated primary schools. In the secondary schools, every S1 pupil (the new S2 cohort) created an e-portfolio and in the primaries, every P7 pupil did so, in preparation for their transition to high school. In many of the primaries, the P6 pupils also created e-portfolios for use in P7 and beyond.

Imaginate’s step by step guide to evaluating the performing arts is now live and available via Glow. This interactive online resource has been designed through consultation with teachers and pupils from Whalsay Primary, Shetland and Busby Primary, East Renfrewshire as part of Imaginate’s Co-Create project.
Stevie Dante is a virtual theatre critic – he guides users through a range of activities intended to help them explore, evaluate and assess their experiences of live performance. His engaging personality, good looks and wit will ensure that both primary and secondary pupils and teachers will love using this resource.
Through the Co-Create project, pupils’ and teachers’ feedback, via a series of theatre visits, workshops and on-Glow activities, informed Imaginate’s development of the interactive resource, in partnership with Screenmedia, digital communications studio. The resource has now been launched nationally so that all teachers can use it. Imaginate’s aim now is that a new community of users will share their performance reviews via the project Glow Group.
The new resource aims to support teachers in meeting Curriculum for Excellence Expressive Arts Experiences and Outcomes across all levels, and encourages pupils to develop critical thinking skills and become more able to express their own thoughts, feelings and opinions with confidence whilst valuing those of others.More
