My name is Bill Lord and I work as Regional Adviser in Literacy for the National Strategies. I am interested in developing strategies for enhancing learning and teaching in literacy and have worked in several action research projects looking at the use of boy friendly strategies, ICT and multimodality.

I am lucky enough to work alongisde some very talented people in my job and to see some inspiring practice. This blog will hopefully enable me to share some of what I have seen and link to research or resources which may help other teachers, advisers and researchers in their work.

The image on the header of this site is cropped from a photo taken by my 9 year old daughter. She has had her own digital SLR for a year and is already showing a far better eye and more skills than her father. A metaphor for the teaching of ICT in Primary maybe!
