Working towards these values
A range of different approaches have been adopted in Scotland to support the use of digital technologies for learning. In addition, children, young people and staff in early years and school settings are provided with a national service to support digital learning and teaching. This service is called Glow.
Glow provides access to a range of digital tools and services through a single username and password. It is an environment in which all learners and teachers can create, collaborate and innovate to improve learning outcomes.
