Third Glow Trial Update!

We have completed our three secondary class trials. Dave's third and final group had great problems logging in, as mentioned in my earlier posts. This wasn't helped by the fact that the network access was like treacle. The main problem with the passwords was the font in which they were typed. Even when Dave changed this, it still was a challenge (i.e. a straight vertical line could be a number '1', a capital 'I', a small 'L', etc).

Dave, Brian Cunningham (Musselburgh Grammer) and I, are proposing to spend some sessions, after school, exploring glow further this week. Although our trial lessons are over, many of our pupils are keen to use glow for various projects for the remaining time of the trial. I will report back in due course.

Our fourth years sat their Biology prelim yesterday so I am off to entertain a 'door step' sized pile of marking :(

I will let you know how we get on. Keep the glow gossip up!
