International - Creating sports legacy

29th October 2010 at 01:00

Now that responsibility for the Commonwealth Games has been handed to Scotland, Learning and Teaching Scotland (LTS) has launched a set of new resources to help teachers develop the educational legacy of the games.

"The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, preceded by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, provide a huge opportunity to leave a lasting legacy for learning. Hosting these and other major sporting events provides a rich context for learning across the curriculum and opportunities to forge international partnerships," said a spokeswoman for LTS.

Twelve ambassadors from Glasgow secondary schools have been exploring what makes a successful international school partnership and have recorded their experiences in a dedicated new blog. A number of teachers, performers and athletes have also signed up as guest bloggers:

The resources include an interactive map, where teachers can record their organisation's activities and highlight their international partnerships.
