“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand.” Confucious

“If I write my ideas in my book, my teacher reads them. If I write my ideas onย a blog, thousands of peopleย read them.” A pupil

“I can do some work before break and, by the time I’ve eaten my orange, someone in Australia or America has seen it and told me what they think!”
A pupil

I can remember school before computers, before digital cameras, before the Internet, before blogs, before Wikipedia, before Google Earth and laptops. My pupils can’t. These things are not a ‘treat’ for them; it’s their world.

It’s instant, it’s engaging, it’s global. Get involved!

    I thought I would leave a comment to say how impressed I was with your blog. You have given me some ideas. I really liked the audio boom recordings – I will definitely be looking into that.

    They are great facts! I love blogging, how about you? I want to congratulate you on your success on becoming a popular blog. I especially like this one:

    โ€œIf I write my ideas in my book, my teacher reads them. If I write my ideas on a blog, thousands of people read them.โ€

    I think your blog is really successful and well done on being successful.

    Just want to congratulate the whole school on the wonderful Christmas Carol Service last Friday. Our guest from France was very impressed because there is nothing like this in French Schools.

    Also, I have just watched the school choir on the IPlayer and I think they are fantastic. Well done to all the children and the teachers.
