  1. Another great listen boys.
    Just to extend the ‘spell check’ debate, wondering what your thoughts are in regards to the Fins push to scrap handwriting? (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-02-03/finland-scraps-cursive-writing-lessons-in-schools/6066826)
    In regards to BYO(…) Alan Thwaites has been writing some really interesting stuff on the matter lately: https://no2pisa.wordpress.com/2015/03/04/keeping-alive-the-ghost-of-computer-rooms-past/ and https://no2pisa.wordpress.com/2014/12/15/the-terrifying-vast-ocean-of-byod-chaos/ He might be one to call out to in regards to schools going BYOD in Early Years. I do know that Manor Lakes is, not sure of any others off the top of my head.
