Free learning for Scotland

My Learning to provide free learning to Scotland.

Telford, Shropshire 17 September 2012

My Learning (UK) Ltd today announced that they will be providing free learning platforms and services to schools in Scotland with immediate effect. The company wishes to allow schools in Scotland to benefit from their resources without fear of contracts or costs.

The decision by My Learning was made in August, after Google UK Ltd reluctantly withdrew its expression of interest on May 2nd 2012 to bid for the provision of ‘Next Generation Glow’ in Scotland. Many schools were anticipating exciting prospects for ‘Glow 2’, potentially powered by Google Apps for Education.

Business Development Director for My Learning, Alan Sawyers, commented that “Schools in Scotland are faced with potential turmoil during the coming year after the unexpected withdrawal of Google. Many schools and Local Authorities are now seeking alternative free solutions outside of the Glow provision. Our product will shortly offer Google integration, meaning that schools may continue with their Google journey. My Learning fundamentally believes that Educators should have a choice, our products will therefore be provided at no cost to any school in Scotland.

My Learning are at this year's Scottish Learning Festival on 19th and 20th September stand C9.
