It's an interesting time for those involved in teaching and learning with technology.

The current coalition government (at the time of writing) has still to publish an e-Strategy and leadership in relation to online learning through virtual environments seems to have been abandoned.

Tideway School's experience of learning environments - three different products in as many years - is probably not an unexceptional one.

Currently we are using EDU 2.0, an American product.

It is being used extensively in ICT / Digital Learning, with most lessons either being taught through or available on the platform.

Apart from this, it is mainly being used to support cross-curricular projects, such as an online Holocaust conference for KS4 students.

Further updates will be available from here.
