This time last year, I wrote a post all about how actually on reflection Glow is fantastic and I will be using it more. I do use it most days, but mostly for the OneDrive storage space.
I have trained my colleague as well as our National 5 and Higher RMPS class on how to use OneNote. Last year I got really annoyed at having to constantly print, reprint, re photocopy notes, that were never read. This year all our course notes are going on One Note, which is like a collaborative notebook. Each person can work together, have their own space and access the notes that are uneditable until they are copied into their own ‘space’. As there are two teachers teaching the course this is a brilliant tool as we can both update, upload and observe the pupils work.
This is at least a start in the Glow journey. More importantly I have managed to work out how to change and access pupils passwords, this is the most handiest tool.
There is a great RMPS community on Glow, that engages in professional dialogue, the sharing of resources and ideas. Admittedly it is not the most accessible website in the world, and takes a bit of searching to find the right bit, but once your there it is really good. There are probably a million and other things that Glow can do, but we’ll do baby steps at the moment.
