Thank you Adventure Author team, Miss Collins and Class for the detailed comments in your blogs on how to work with this fantastic resource in the classroom to develop literacy, problem-solving and creativity. I enjoy logging in each day to see what clever things you've been up to!

Gail Dyer

It is really interesting to read about how the Adventure Author has developed since the beginning. You are so fortunate to be working in an environment which is so encouraging of such initiative. Thanks for connecting us with Judy. Look forward to meeting her next week when she visits. To think connections are made across the world to like minds in the same city. Will keep reading and commenting with enjoyment. Brilliant!

Judy Martin

Gail, I can't wait to meet up next week! It is funny to think that we should link up via people on the other side of the world, when we are just a 'stone's throw' away from each other. Are you getting as excited as I am about the possibilities of creating what Campie P7's have, right here in our own schools?

This is just so exciting to be part of, even if vicariously. To know Judy, Kathrin, Kieron and have talked with them about the balloons which seem to have mutated into fridge magnets (clever) to have been in the classroom with Kathrin, she is trully fine educator and seen how she has the kids eating out of her hands, I sit here reading the observations and wishing that we could experience and be supported in such a dynamic, fascinating way of accessing and engaging students. Judy M both Kim and I are really looking forward to meeting with you and seeing how we can become a support / inspiration for each other in the vaccuum in which we are working at the moment.

Gail, Judy, it's just great to have your enthusiastic and supportive comments - thank you so much - and if there's anything we can do to help you develop things on your side of the world, we will do our best to help. Very happy to chat about the literacy, learning and teaching angles. I have to say I feel very privileged to be part of this project, it's probably the best thing I have done in the whole of my career in education, and I do feel we are on the brink of being able to offer something quite special and powerful that has the potential to make a real difference to children and teachers. I hope to spend some time over the summer developing support materials and guidance info so that future projects can become more independent. It's really good to know that you are keen to try similar things in your neck of the woods, and we'd love to know how you get on.

Judy Martin

Cathrin, thanks for your offer of support. I'm very keen to try something similar to what you have been doing, once the software has passed through the trial stage. Support materials and info on how to plan and teach such a project would be a huge asset to teachers also. I'll definitely keep in touch to let you know how I get on.

Gail Dyer

Cathrin we are keen to try what you have been doing and we know it will benefit our students language learning ad creativity enormously. I know Kim and Judy have now met thanks to you and they will no doubt be in touch and there will be communication. We will continue to follow the path of Adventure Author it is an exciting project.
