Working in partnership, Education Scotland and e-Sgoil will provide new support to increase the availability of online learning across different subjects and support digital inclusion throughout Scotland.
The support aims to develop a strong national e-learning provision, with a number of additional teachers from local authorities trained to provide online lessons (available to learners in the senior phase in Scotland via Glow). These online lessons are designed to help support and augment the work of classroom teachers in local arrangements for schools re-opening on Tuesday 11th August.
All local authorities and schools in Scotland will be able to access live lessons on a range of subjects, and will take shared ownership for delivering these.
The range of lessons will be taught live by experienced and qualified educators, all with national safeguarding checks, and will be recorded to ensure that pupils have further opportunities to learn. This aims to increase the availability of learning opportunities for pupils, with a focus initially on lessons to help those following national qualification courses in the senior phase. Along with their partners, Education Scotland and e-Sgoil are working to ensure that a wide range of certificated courses in both English and Gaelic medium education will be available to learners in the senior phase from Tuesday 11th August.
