    primary learning platform

    SWGFL use net media, not sure how many schools have taken it up though. Wolverhampton seem to be doing good stuff (recent BECTA awards etc) and they use LP+ in primary.

    Wolverhampton are the leaders for mobile and handheld computing. Certainly done a lot of good work in that field.

    Peterborough (a unitary authority within Cambs) has gone for Kaleidos from RM. They already use Integris for MIS. Think it has been bought for all the secondary schools as well as the primaries, but not sure how widely it's been taken up although we've had it for about 2 years now (now on version 2). I think the schools may be due to pay for it themselves in next year or so, and then we will see who is happy with it and who's not.

    I am a Year 5 teacher in a school in Kent in the Ashford Rural Cluster (ARC). We have supplied all our 19 schools with Kaleidos and are trying to engage staff. It is sometimes an uphill struggle but my experiences with children in Years 1,3,5 and 6 show that it is well worth it. We are just choosing content at the moment so any tips would be great.

    We are having a look at j2e.com - home page it seems to be excellent value. Our only concern so far is that it operates HTTP not HTTPS - anyone got any useful comments on this please.

    Please use correct etiquette when "pimping" your software, we don't appreciate being misled into thinking you're not a commercial guy. It's not right and I won't even look at your software because of it. Lesson learnt.

I have just started a blog Primary Learning Platform on which I am going to post about my experience and would appreciate any comments or ideas.

    I am also creating a list of Learning Platforms used by Local Authorities and whether they are used at Primary level, Secondary level or both. Either post below or leave a comment on my blog and I will update my list.
    Take a look at Frogteacher.com

    You may find that a local secondary school has it installed already and you can have a primary version installed on their server. This will give you a satellite install where the VLE sits on the secondary school's server. They can provide you with first-line technical support too which may be useful as they may only be down the road!

    That's what we've done with some of our primary schools.

    Hi GeekChick. I am our VLE Co-Ordinator in our school, a junior school with 420 pupils. I would be more than happy to share my experiences of the Learning Platform over the last two years if that is of any use to you. We use Kaleidos here in Warwickshire.

    Hi GeekChick
    I'm from Stockport LEA, we use Moodle for all our primary schools. Although the system can be sometimes a little hard to understand, once the teachers have grasped the basics its ok. We have about 110 moodle with schools at lots of different stages and now with the prospect of so many funding cuts moodle seems like a good choice as we have everything internal with only a small support contact with a moodle partner.

    Cheers
