The 1+2 Factor is open to all Scottish education establishments and the aim is to showcase the learning and teaching of languages in Scottish schools and encourage the use of digital technology. We are inviting individual classes, schools or clusters to use any of the tools within Glow to create a learning space which will help in the implementation of the 1+2 languages policy.
We are pleased to announce the first judge of the event. Jim Fanning is Head of Emerging Technologies in the Digital Teaching and Learning Team. The team work on a joint programme between Scottish Government and Education Scotland that supports the use of technology to enhance learning. In his career he had been a secondary school teacher of history, a youth and community worker, a pastoral head of house, Director of Sixth Form Studies and an assistant headteacher.
Jim had this to say about the event: “As a judge I will be looking for good use of digital technology both from Glow and other areas and an understanding of the impact this has made in schools and the classroom. I would like to see examples of the ways in which teams have worked together and supported team members to create their entry for the competition.”
The 1+2 Factor is an ideal opportunity to not only develop the language provision in your school but also to improve your school’s use of digital technology in languages and any other curriculum areas.
The event will culminate with a showcase at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in September.
