The Scottish Arts Council gets ready to Glow


A pioneering new initiative to bring arts education resources online for schools across Scotland has been launched by the Scottish Arts Council and Learning Teaching Scotland through Glow, the world’s first national intranet for education.

Designed to break down geographical barriers, overcome time restraints and allow schools to access innovative new educational experiences, Glow aims to bring learning to life.

Using the latest technology the Glow intranet can provide unprecedented access to artists, writers and performers in real time and allow young people to interact with the arts wherever they are in the world.

The Scottish Arts Council has committed £300k of National Lottery funds with an additional £100k of support from LTS to support this groundbreaking creative partnership.

The project is led by Glow Arts Development Officer, Julia Fenby, who, working within LTS will support arts organisations to engage with schools through Glow. Julia will also lead on an innovative demonstration project involving a number of arts organisations using the new intranet and the creation of new resources to support teaching and learning via Glow.

Over the next 20 months Julia will be working with selected arts organisations currently in receipt of Foundation or Flexible funding from the Scottish Arts Council on new demonstration projects due to be announced later this year, which will trial new ways of learning and show how creativity and the arts are a fantastic way of supporting Curriculum for Excellence.

The project will provide CPD opportunities for both teachers and arts practitioners to work together to develop ideas, projects and resources and Julia is keen to make contact with teachers, cultural coordinators and local arts teams who would like to be involved.
