Highland gets GLOWing

The first meeting of Highland’s Glow mentors took place on Friday 15th December.


Twenty-nine teachers from all over Highland met at Strathpeffer Community Centre to hear from Alan Yeoman, Learning & Teaching Scotland on progress so far and plans for next steps.

There was an opportunity for mentors to start discussing and considering their future role now that details have begun to emerge from the development team. There was also a chance to feedback on the first phase of the portal pilot that had been running throughout November and early December.

Mentors were offered, and most accepted, a loan of a new laptop for use throughout the Glow implementation period. The computers are modern wireless and bluetooth enabled and were supplemented with a bluetooth mouse, a network cable, a 512mb U3 pen drive, and a very practical backpack bag.

The next meeting has been arranged for 29th March 2007.
