RadioBlogging.Net (www.RadioBlogging.Net )
RadioBlogging.Net is a daily radio programme that teaches literacy and is aimed at families and schools. It is interactive so that children write and their work is published during and after the show. Each day there are spelling, grammar and vocabulary games, followed by creative writing and responding to reading. The show features a poet of the day and author of the week. All posts are moderated and there is a team of teachers that respond to the children’s writing. It is an innovative project combining education radio and blogging to enhance and support continuous learning provision at this critical time.
