    Ever wished you could write resources that look like they've been professionally written.

    This staff tutorial teaches the skills and techniques required to create colourful, professional looking resources quickly using a desktop publishing application.

    Today’s pupils live in a world where they are surrounded by colourful, interactive content which is literally at their fingertips. It should come as no surprise then that when presented with a white worksheet covered with black text and a couple of Googled graphics many pupils instinctively respond negatively. A modern teacher has a responsibility to improve their own skills in order to create engaging resources.
    This is a commercial resource which can be downloaded from the link below for $5.

    Note that this version of the tutorial contains instructions to create resources using Serif PagePlus, a very popular desktop publishing application. PagePlus is used in many schools due to its fun interface, ease of use and fantastic facilities. I highly recommend it to colleagues when delivering training on this topic.

    was interested to see @SQAcomputing tweet about a document Munch, Poke, Ping on child online safety for vulnerable young people. I wonder how many outside the computing sphere will read and/or care? Also, I have NEVER heard any child use those terms. Am off to our Google+ group to ask them . . .
