If your school is too far away to visit the National Records of Scotland in Edinburgh for a workshop, book a Glow Meet web conferencing session instead.
The National Records of Scotland has a National Glow Group from which you can access our Glow Meets. You will find our Group listed on the National Glow Site.
To Glow Meet, you will need a computer or laptop linked to an interactive whiteboard, a microphone and webcam, and access to a Glow account. You need to provide us with your Glow username and your school email address so we can add you to our Glow Group. We meet teachers online at least two weeks in advance of the first session to test the link and to finalise the content to be covered.
From 4 September 2013 on the first Wednesday of each calendar month, NRS Education staff will be available in our Glow Meet room to introduce our Glow service and to answer any questions that you have. Please feel free to 'drop in'.
