Scotland on Screen

Scotland on Screen is a major new resource for teaching across the curriculum and at all stages, providing online access to hundreds of archive films from Scotland, from the 1890s to the 1980s, together with a variety of additional resources and information to help teachers. All users can stream the films, while teachers and pupils in Scotland can download high quality versions by logging in to GLOW, the national schools intranet, enabling a wide range of creative activities and projects.


Scotland on Screen was developed in partnership with Learning and Teaching Scotland and the Scottish Screen Archive at the National Library of Scotland, and managed by Scottish Screen Lead Practitioner David Griffith. Launched at the Scottish Learning Festival 2009, it was shortlisted for a Learning on Screen award; it is being further developed during 2010.
