    Hello Michael,
    Just posting to show you the website I have created for my class. It was mainly to try out all the new things I learnt today in Aylsham, but I am so pleased with it I will be revealing it to 5J in the morning!
    Thanks for your help today.


    p.s. spot the ‘Voki’, and the ‘worlde’!

      Hi Sam – great to see the site, it looks really good. If you want to get the children linking up I know our Y5 staff would be keen. It’s good to have other classes to share things with and it can act as a good stimulus. Please keep in touch and if you get the chance have a look at hawes-side.net

    Hi Michael
    I’m writing a report on the role social media can play in teacher CPD, and would love to hear your thoughts. Could you drop me a line if you’re willing to chat about this? julie.mcculloch@pearson.com

    Hi Michael,
    Found your blog through twitter last night- I’m Deputy Headteacher at a primary school in Liverpool and am really interested in preparing our children for the uncertain times ahead, particularly through the use of Digital Media and Collaborative Learning. I have shared your post ‘Help me to learn, don’t teach me’ with all of our staff today as this is an area we are keen to explore further!
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experiences.
