Scoop.it is a great free tool for creating online magazines. These can be used to collate resources on a specific theme. See a great example here by Jo Badge on the Tudors.

Answer garden is a great free online tool for collecting answers to a question. These are the answers to my question: What do you want to learn next?

The ICT curriculum hasn't changed in years, which seems ridiculous in a world where technology is constantly evolving. Many teachers have started to update the curriculum according to where their school is. Some schools I work with still rely on QCA schemes, others have fully embedded skills in their curriculum.
The ICT curriculum at Roydon is changing so rapidly (Ipads now!!) that I can barely keep up with the paperwork. It is great therefore that there are people out there who are willing to share their hard work. As with my plans, they may not be specific to your needs, but will give you ideas to draw on and resources to adapt to your school. So, check out @OhLottie's blog, which includes useful skills curriculum overviews, @simonhaugton's wonderful
progression grids and @ianaddison's detailed planning site. Some fantastic stuff on their blogs to save us all a lot of hard work.
