    Really brilliant work. How was the animation created? Did the children create it themselves?

    I have tried using blogs with my FE students but, it seems many, see them as an added complication in expressing their learning rather than a way to enhance it. I’d welcome some tips for generating enthusiasm for blogging.

    This is a fantastic resource and one that I will use with teachers and parents to promote blogging. Would also like to know what program/online tool was used to produce the video.

    Thanks David, some excellent resources and ideas on Friday! I’ve already had some emails asking about starting blogs. Thanks for the tweets about our teach meet session – great to meet you in person!

    Excellent talk today at the Shout it Out conference in Somerset. I’ll definitely be doing a blog for my reception class. Will be keeping an eye on your blogs too. Thanks for the inspiration.
