"Bev worked with several groups of students in Years 8-9 English lessons focussing on encouraging creativity through ICT. The students responded very well to the NEO shared writing activity where they worked in pairs to develop each others' stories. This enabled the students to unlock their creative writing skills and let their imaginations run wild. Bev also used ideas from social networking sites such as Twitter so that students could use this medium to get into the minds of characters from 'Much Ado About Nothing'. This medium was very relevant and the children enjoyed being able to apply their own experience of social networking in a positive way to gain a deeper understanding of characters along with empathy. On the whole, the children enjoyed a range of new ICT packages that Bev introduced and Bev's enthusiasm for creativity in ICT inspired a great many of the students who she worked with. Her work also helped the English Department to see how ICT can be used within schemes of work and these are being developed as a result of these new ideas.
