    Hi everyone,

    All of this discussion is around effective use of technology and using technology to ensure students reach their potential. e-learning really encourages individualised learning on so many levels and has loads of positive attributes. It is very exciting! Just to throw a spanner in the works... how do we ensure that we are still balancing out our curriculum, having a strong focus on the Arts and Health and PE? What about 'screen time'? Here is a short article about that to get people thinking...

    I have been out mainstream classes for quite a while. When my own children started school last year I was quite shocked to find out that at the end of the day they were watching Mr Bean cartoons, or in my friend's case her child finished the day with an episode of Charlie and Lola. Back in the day it would have been finishing off with a picture book or a game that required cooperation, or perhaps some play/exploration time ... what are people's thoughts on the possible overuse of ICT and the learning implications for students?

    We use StoryPark and have ePortfolios. You can do group posts, or duplicate posts, so you wouldn't have to do a post for each individual child. It is great, so easy to use and has awesome support in terms of the 'help' desk.
