DeputyMitchell has been working tirelessly over the last three years since leaving Headship to bring blogging into as many classrooms as possible. Working closely with Pie Corbett, DeputyMitchell has developed a project for schools working in clusters aimed at:
Improving progress in writing and children’s attitudes to learning through Blogging and Web2.0 tools.
Each cluster of schools collaborates with DeputyMitchell for two years and works on:
- A clearly identified and measurable set of outcomes agreed with all schools at the outset;
- An Inset program of 10 days per year (in school) designed to deliver the agreed outcomes across the cluster;
- A custom built blog platform provided by Creative Blogs Ltd as part of the project;
- Soft and hard data tracked throughout the project allowing Project Leads to evidence impact on data, aspiration and attitudes to learning to stakeholders;
As you can see from the cluster pages on the right, DeputyMitchell is currently working with 8 clusters across the UK:
Reading, Durham, London, Wigan, Rugby, Liverpool, Reading/Bracknell and Norwich.
