    As one of the teachers that is taking part in an Inquiry into this subject (specifically focusing on boys writing) we are hoping that motivating the boys with a variety of ICT tools and activities will develop more enthusiasm towards writing. The issue that we feel might occur is that although the boys may become more motivated to write, will this necessarily lead onto an improvement in achievement. The major areas that are holding back boys from achieving in writing are involving the surface features such as punctuation, spelling and tenses. Will using ICT tools and applications help them to improve these skill whilst still maintaining enthusiasm????
