Calling all teachers. It seems the Scottish Government is to commission Glow Mark 2 this year. Is that the best use of ever dwindling education cash? I can see new classroom materials are needed to supply the CfE but is clunky Glow2 or free Facebook Groups the best way forward?
Once we have a new Education Secretary I can check on his/her plans! But meantime I wonder if I can use social media to find out what ordinary web-savvy teachers think (not just on message e-learning coordinators!!) before I write something to coincide with LTS and HmiE merging on July 1st.
Has Glow improved since I wrote this critical Scotsman column last year http://news.scotsman.com/education/-Glow-reached-for-the.5970390.jp ? Are cloud systems better? Do you use Facebook to share stuff with other teachers because of copyright issues on Glow? What's the best way to share material and create great lessons in class? Can non-teaching readers pass this on to the right people please? Ive also used my first hashtag thingy on twitter #glow2 to let people find this debate and have put the same request on my Facebook page.
