During the recent Purpos/ed Conference in Sheffield we were given a smart little book of all of the 500 word articles published during the March campaign. The books were created with the help of Scholastic and their We Are Writers service.
In one of the sessions we discussed how online debate and face-to-face conferences would engage certain members of a school staff and not others. The challenge is to engage those not on Twitter or reading blogs with the same questions and topics we have been grappling with.
One of the things I feel is important is to widen the message and giving away the little book of blog posts seems a pretty good starting point to me. So that is what I did!
When I picked my son up from school yesterday I had a quick chat with his class teacher and gave her the book. She was really pleased to accept it and amazed to see my article in there as well. I hope that she reads some of the posts as they are extremely thought provoking, and of course my own contribution relates to her as she is my son’s teacher.
What have you done with yours? How have you extended the message of Purpos/ed?
