wins NGfL approval

national grid for Learning

A good start to 2004 for when we learned that the site was approved by the National Grid For Learning. They commented that iRespect has:

"Valuable original material, especially the stories and history section. Useful guidance and links for teaching about tolerance. Primarily aimed at Gloucestershire but relevant nationally."

And also that,

"This is a valuable teaching resource giving personal histories of people from varying ethnic backgrounds, cultures, religions and expectations who live in the UK. It provides a wealth of information for teachers in the formal school situation or the casual browser and learner at home. The site is well signposted and easy to use."

National Grid for Leaning Virtual Teacher Centre is now listed on the NGfL and VTC websites, to visit the sites click on the logos here:

The directory entry for reads as follows: created by Gloucestershire County Council's Centre for Intercultural Resources and Language Education, provides information and resources for students, educators and the wider community on the themes of positive tolerance, active citizenship and cultural diversity. It includes lesson plans for teachers, a collection of life stories, and black and Asian history in Gloucestershire.
