Greetings From Wolverhampton, England!

A quick hello from Wolverhampton!

I'm Russell Newman, a Learning Technologies consultant in Wolverhampton, England. I am a huge evangelist of BoomWriter (to anyone who will care to listen!) and I am passionate about the role technology plays in Education, particularly within the skills of reading and writing. I have a book published about the role video games can play in engaging pupils to write. I am currently leading the Writing Bee participation of 10 schools in Wolverhampton with around 300 pupils taking part in the event.

I look forward to contributing to the community and seeing BoomWriter become part of the fabric of writing engagement in schools.

    Hi Russell - Thank you for bringing The Writing Bee into Wolverhampton, U.K. and thus making it a truly global event! Well wishes from BoomWriter to all the Wolverhampton teachers and students!!!

    Lots of very excited pupils and staff- the story start has gone down really well in schools too. A good range of schools are taking part- some whole class, some are using it as a tool to extend their gifted writers.

    Ah, the beauty of BoomWriter. Flexible for teachers to use and always engaging for students. Thanks so much for sharing, Russell!
