Latest News Article: Literacy Project launches with update to Blog Central

19-10-2014 23-06-29.png
The LGfL Literacy Project launched on 10th October at Camden CLC, with 70 teachers attending from across London. 

It featured an inspirational keynote from David Mitchell, founder of quadblogging and widely recognised as the leading expert on blogging in schools. He offered a blend of proven practical techniques for all teachers, and also led workshops on the role of social media in developing a wider audience for pupils’ writing: a challenging but achievable task.

The event also saw the launch of an update to the popular Blog Central site ( The new tagline ‘Write for the world’ embodies blogging’s unique potential to acquire an audience. The resource contains a wealth of revised information, guidance and inspiration for teachers, including videos of David Mitchell explaining elements of blogging – ideal for teachers and senior leaders not able to attend the project launch. Whilst the focus remains on impacting literacy standards, prominence is also given to cross-curricular blogging applications. 

Jack Sloan from Hanover Primary School offered valuable insight into facing the challenges of implementing blogging in a variety of school environments; practical workshops also took place to support teachers in the use and development of the LGfL Creative Toolkit (j2e tools).

The next phase of the LGfL Literacy Project is school-based: teachers will be exploring and developing approaches to blogging in their own contexts. Although not all schools are fortunate enough to still draw on local authority (or equivalent) support, all LGfL teachers can benefit from Blog Central. 

The third phase continues on 27th February back at Camden CLC, where schools will showcase their achievements and receive further support based around the LGfL blogging tools. To register an interest in attending this event, e-mail
