38 I really liked Glow because I learned loads of new stuff. We used web cams and microphones to talk to other schools. I learned more about Michael Morpurgo. Emma, Primary 6 When I was using Glow it was so cool. I learned about Japan by talking to other schools. I wish that Glow didnt have to stop. Hannah, Primary 6 Challenge and Enjoyment I have been using glow in school to help me with my reading study on Kensukes Kingdom. We have been using Glow Chat and Glow Meet. I cant wait until the next time we can use Glow. Lyndsay, Primary 6
