We aim to provide ways in which everyone can contribute uniquely
web-based writing. The Planet of Dreams template for classes was
the first - it comes with full teachers' notes and support and requires
no knowledge of HTML. The second template, Adventure Island, is
being launched in November 2004. It was produced by Simon Widdowson,
our Digital Teacher-in-Residence, as part of the Writers For The
Future in The Classroom project.
If you are a teacher or group leader who would like to create a
web-based project that takes advantage of new technology, please
get in touch and we will do what
we can to help you.
