Primary Learning Platform
What are your experiences of the Learning Platform in Primary Schools?
I have searched the Internet and found very little information on how teachers are using it effectively. I am really enthusiastic and would like to share my enthusiasm with like minded teachers. 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.

Not 100% sure how much of the following involves primary but here are some that I know at a LA level:

That's all I can think of now.
Primary Learning Platform in Cambridgeshire
Cambridgeshire uses a bespoke version of Digitalbrain developed specifically for primary, initially to our own specification. We badge it as 'Starz' here, though other schools and authorities have their own We have been running it very successfully since 2005 and are due to launch version 2 in September, using technology which Digitalbrain have developed based on our and others' experiences
Over 90% of our schools use the system and, as the advisory service, the key for us to getting it used has been a combination of child-friendly tools and a lot of effort going in to providing or stimulating activities that schools and individual learners can take part in. We run something like 20 projects per term centrally, in addition to whatever schools do themselves.
