The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Spellathon is a  free teaching resource for English spelling practice in the classroom and at home. Its  fun, competitive and engaging.

Spellathon is also the biggest sponsored global spelling competition ever. All Schools, Colleges and University Unions will receive 25% of the income fundraised by their students!

Spellathon has been a successful, paper based annual fundraising event for learning disability charity Mencap for the last 18 years. In 2011 , by applying online, laptops, mobiles, tablets and smart whiteboard technologies with state -of-the-art 3D animation, Spellathon has reached a global audience.

Registration is now open for all Schools, Colleges and Universities from around the world, to receive a personal invitation from Stephen Fry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Fry) and a Free Digital Schools Pack that will contain the interactive whiteboard game, assembly video, pre-populated digital marketing materials and everything else they need to take part.

Stephen Fry has said: "This is just about the best integration of imagination, education, technology inclusiveness and fun that I've ever encountered.

Spellathon is also available for whiteboards from either Promethean Planet or Smart Technologies.

I have posted a video to introduce Spellathon on my home page blog.
