The Hosts:

mattjamesMatt James (@RCCS_MrJames) – I’m Head of Year Seven at Risca Community Comprehensive School (@RiscaCCS) where I teach both English and PE. I am a huge advocate and fan of technologies in the classroom and have a particular interest in gender studies and raising the achievements of boys. I am a big sports fan and am heavily involved in the coaching of the school’s football and rugby teams – this, I feel, is a major entry point for accessing and raising boys’ engagement levels in school.

JulieGibbinsJulie Gibbings via @Literacy_Trust – Julie provides strategic leadership for our schools work to ensure that we support them effectively in the changing educational context. Before joining the National Literacy Trust, Julie worked at the Citizenship Foundation, where she led a variety of programmes for schools, wrote educational publications and trained teachers. Julie has also worked as a secondary school teacher and is a parent governor at her son’s primary school.

Literacy is one of those subjects that impacts on all other curriculum areas, so the discussion this evening is likely to focus on strategies that support the development of key skills in pupils, from phonics, all the way through to reading and writing skills that impact on adult life. Does technology have a place in helping develop these key skills?
