    Has anyone seen the recent post on keith ansell's ICT blog, its about the spelling tests online that ive found.

    i'm with keith here, i think the spelling tests on spellanywhere are fabulous and if we didnt spend all our cash on whiteboards we would be setting it up asap! ;(

    Re: Bristol schools

    Surely you could create a spelling test with the moodle quiz module.

    Surely something as simple as Spellanywhere doesn't cost anywhere near as much as an IWB??

    IWB dosent integrate into our website and moodle will be password protected and our children find spellanywhere much easier to use.

    you can still use the IWB's to teach your Moodle courses, or indeed use them interactively with any web based system - IWB and Web resources don't need to be mutually exclusive.

    Re: Bristol schools

    ok cybernerd but you are missing the point here. my class are more than happy to use the school website to do their spelling tests at home, and the fact that our teachers can submit tests is really appealing.

    moving away from moodle, i think that this tool will excite the children, and others on our website at home and anywhere therefore increasing my stat count on the website. For the cost which they have quoted it seems very reasonable.

    Re: Bristol schools

    in our school there's opposition to change in ICT which a bet you will agree must come about with the governments agenda, spellanywhere is something which will ease them into ICT in our school. My colleague says spellanywhere quoted £100, i knew it was something small!
