In our latest podcast, host Michael Hallissy speaks with Joanne Gilmartin teacher at Leckaun National School, Co. Leitrim, to talk about the power of blogging in the primary classroom. Joanne is one of the guest contributors in the recently published Enhancing Literacy and Numeracy with ICTs publication which will soon be distributed to every school in country. During the interview Joanne details the collaborative journey her third class pupils undertook in creating their award-winning class blog, one that is the subject of her contribution in the new ICT handbook in a chapter entitled ‘B is for Blog’.
