GiggleIT


The International Association of School Librarianship has created an innovative and exciting project called GiggleIT

The idea of the project is to help students aged 10-14 to improve their literacy skills through an online collaboration. Children from around the world are invited to contribute to an eBook that will contain poetry, stories, jokes and cultural stories. The only rule is that they must be humourous.

It sounds like a fun way for our students to connect with others around the world, improve their literacy and have fun in an online environment. Registration is free so I think I might register my Year 5 and 6 Literacy groups. Let me know if you are interested.
