We recognise the importance of being prepared for unforeseen events in school life – snow days, flooding or fire just to name a few. There are also many opportunities where the curriculum is delivered to learners across Scotland from different locations. Here’s how Glow can be used as one of your key assets to deliver education remotely.
Glow is an anytime, any device and anywhere service – all you need is a device with an internet connection. It can be accessed at home, from another school building or even to support pupils away from school. All pupils and teachers in Scotland are entitled to a Glow account.
A Glow account provides access to a suite of applications configured for your school. This can include Microsoft O365, Glow Blogs and Google Workspace for Education.
The advice below will help you to work through the practical tasks that need to be undertaken in advance to ensure Glow can be used to provide a remote learning experience when the need arises..
We hope this helps to identify how you can use Glow to work as quickly and easily as possible during an unforeseen event. Your Glow Key Contact can help if you have any questions and further support is available from the Glow Team at Education Scotland via Glow Enquiries.
