The Glow and Digital Annual Survey is now Live

Each year Education Scotland collects feedback from learners and teachers across Scotland about how digital technology is being used in schools and early learning and childcare centres.

The survey is now live and we encourage you to complete it.  The survey results will help us understand how digital technology is being used and help shape our offering so it continues to evolve in line with the needs of the education community.

The survey is split into two sections, one section for staff and the second aimed at learners.  The survey will be open until 30 June 2019 and results are completely anonymous and no personal data is captured. You can find full details in our Privacy Policy

Glow Blogs Update

Do you have a Glow Blog? Most likely the answer is yes! Glow Blogs is one of the most popular services in Glow with over 3000 new blogs created each month. This is fantastic news and we want to make sure Glow keeps performing well to support your blogs.

To help improve performance and user satisfaction, the infrastructure and hosting service for Glow Blogs is changing.

The work for this will be carried out over the weekend of Friday 31st May and should be completed by the afternoon of Monday 3rd June. During this period the service will not be available for any users to either edit of view blogs. We have informed Glow Key Contacts of this in advance of the work being carried out and set this date so that the work did not take place during exam time.

Please refer to the Glow Service Status page for confirmation of this work being complete – https://status.education.scot/.
