WordPress For Weans – how the Scottish education system is encouraging kids to contribute with confidence

It’s one of the largest WordPress multi-site installs we know of in the UK, but few have ever heard of it. Scotland’s Glow was the world’s first national intranet for education, and features WordPress as one of several components offered to pupils and teachers. It supports more than 140,000 websites, blogs and e-portfolios, with hundreds more being added each week.

Glow product owner John Johnston joined us at March 2015’s London Big Media & Enterprise Meetup to explain how WordPress was supporting the Scottish curriculum’s aim to produce successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors. You may need to channel your inner Scotsman to make sense of his title, ‘WordPress For Weans’!

John’s slides are also available as a PDF.
